Monday 7th April 1941

Bitterest wind ever, when I awoke, trembling with cold this morning. Apparently the enemy did not attack Timimi last night, and our gunners are back here now.
They say the GOC is captured. This battery has 30 men missing, believed captured. god knows how we manage to escape time after time. Partly fine judgment and map reading, partly luck.

Last night's news did not mention Libya at all, except to say that troops from the Libyan campaign were now fighting in Yugo-Slavia and Greece!

Did not move. A dusty, foul day.
