Sunday 17th July 1938

Recruits of nos. 1,2 and 3 Companies carried out their musketry exercise at Rainham Ranges. (And it was summery!) Grouping and application at 100 and 200 yards. (This is the limit for Signals.) Didn’t take note of my scores all the time but think the aggregate was about 73 to 76 out of a possible hundred. Not brilliant – but what an improvement on the old RNVR days! And just because of a simple word of advice from a thorough going Sergt. Major! (“Keep your foresight level with the shoulders of the U of the backsight”)

And no one had told me that before!
