Saturday 13th August 1938

A fairly easy day. No “school”. Various odd jobs – striking tents – and long “stand-easy” periods. Given nearly two hours for dinner and told to parade again at 2p.m.

Soon after the hour had struck, Sergt. Major Cooley wandered down our lines. As he paused near tent no.4, Woolmer asked him if the parade had been postponed? “Parade?” said the SM vacantly, deliciously, “Oh, I’ve forgotten about it!” So we did no more work that day!

Two pontoon games, one at dinner time, one in the evening. Won on both.
