Sunday 5th March 1939

Up at 7:45a.m., blast it.

Walked down to the drill hall and went in the lorry to Colchester. Bloody bad discipline in this unit and the blokes are very young. Except for the two Sorrells, Hignall, Embleton and a new bloke, Dean, they are all boys and mostly behave as such. Norrington, who is 17 and joined just before myself, seems decent.

Beat Bisley in three games of chess, after tea; that gives me a lead of one game in our series match. We hope to continue, even when I have left these digs.
