Friday 2nd May 1941

Noontime now and a hell of a dust storm on. Haven't had any breakfast yet and don't feel inclined to cook, in this weather. We've been out on the line. It wasn't very pleasant. The situation is obscure but not too good. Apparently there is a 2000 yards gap in our defences, through which the enemy is coming.

B and E Troops have moved away to the right flank; A and D remain in this sector. The enemy is stated to have at least 90 AFVs in reserve, yet. The enemy planes don't seem to pay so much attention to the harbour now but appear more keen on bombing and machine-gunning troops on the ground. Our planes are seldom if ever seen nowadays and then only singly.
