Monday 24th February 1941

Mersa Matruh for tonight's bivouac. An advance party goes by rail tomorrow, from Matruh station, to our “rest” camp. Probably it will be a refitting place and we won't “rest” there long either! George Hignall and Grant are in the party.

Evening: Went across to X car site and had three games of chess with Denny Search and Stan Ling in their candle-lit “tent” They entertained me hospitably – cigarettes, tea in a nice, clean mug, chocolate and chocolate biscuits!

When I got back to the M1 site, everyone there was in bed and asleep.
