Wednesday 29th November 1939

Sid and I went to a tailors and had our double stripes sewn on. In the evening I had to change all the buttons on my great coat. The delightful and well polished cavalry type EY buttons were replaced by ten dull, raw, tarnished GS buttons.

Rumour has it that our Christmas leave will also be our embarkation leave and that the 4th Cavalry Brigade of the 1st Cavalry Division will move to the near East (Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Palestine?) at the end of January.
