Saturday 14th October 1939

I put in for weekend leave but did not really expect to receive a pass as I was away last weekend. I was surprised and delighted when the Orderly Bombardier brought my pass along, at lunchtime.

Went up by train. Supper at home. Mother, concerned about my influenza (which still persists), “mothered” me thoroughly. Lucky I went home, because Father “goes off” next Tuesday – sooner than I’d expected – and heaven knows when our leaves will coincide again!

He will be a Sub-Lieutenant, RNVR and is reporting at a “school” (HMS Tamarisk, whereabouts not known) for a brief course in minesweeping.
