Thursday 29th July 1937

Misty day.

We carried out the ammo. Stood-by for a concentration shoot. Four guns were in action for a few seconds, and fired 20 rounds. The Left section did not shoot.

Afterwards, we laboriously reset the fuses at safety, repacked the ammo. And took it back to the dump. Felt somewhat gloomy. Only 1/2d left, therefore no refreshments today. Just a few cigarettes remaining, and a little pipe tobacco. The dining tent was empty when I wearily arrived about 6 o’clock. However, the orderly brought me bread, margarine and marmalade and slab cake. The tea, by some miracle, was still hot.

I read a paper afterwards, lit a cigarette, and felt better.
