Tuesday 27th July 1937

The wind dropped today. Warmer weather but still low cloud at 4000 feet. Stood-by all day waiting for a chance to fire live rounds but the skies did not clear. This waiting and inaction is making 193 discontented. There is a good deal of grumbling in the main camp. The Battery is only six months old yet. We’ll settle down, later on. Evening “on” again. (I have not left camp since Saturday.)

It is just become dark. The wind has risen in the last few minutes. Lee and myself are laying on our beds fairly snugly. Candles burning on the UB2 boxes on each side. Have 2/9d left. Lee only has one penny so I’ve arranged to lend him a shilling! Two men in low water!
