Thursday 20th January 1938

My brother Richard is making efforts to secure Father’s consent in a small matter – enlistment in RNVR, London Division! If he is successful I shall – somehow – leave my beastly little Anti-Aircraft Battery and join RNVR with Richard. Guess I could manage to put in one evening a week now that I’ve settled down here – and can also afford the travelling expenses.

As a preliminary, I tonight revealed my previous service to the 193rd authorities, showing my RNVR discharge papers and casually mentioning the fake statements made on enlistment. “You did that deliberately?” asked the horrified subaltern. “Yes”, I said cheerfully. “Oh, yes, sir!” Am to call back later with regard to this matter.
