Wednesday 15th November 1939

Rashly, I agreed to turn out for a scratch Battery team tomorrow. A Rugby football practice match against the local School XV. I haven’t played “rugger” since about 1925, and then I played damn badly. Nervous, ignorant and ineffectual.

Our Militia replacements came in tonight. They are known as “the new draft”, officially. Bloody conscripts all the same.
