Wednesday 15th May 1940

Artfully evaded doing any real work until break. A little of my former energy is now returning. It was awful to feel as buggered-up as I did a few days ago!

(Holland has laid down arms and surrendered – already! British troops are getting into action in Belgium.) Three blokes have requested to transfer to a Western Front Unit – we feel terribly “out” of it here. Several others are only waiting to see what happens to this initial request before they also put in for transfers.

Podgie Pond is in hospital (he's been away for more than a week, suffering from a boil on the face. He only reported sick to have it squeezed!) but when he returns we'll probably push our names in the hat, if there is any chance.
