Saturday 5th April 1941

Luxury: Porridge, with rich condensed milk and lots of sugar, at breakfast. We've so much English loot on M1 that we do damn well for grub.

News: Germany declared war on Greece and Yugo-Slavia.
Wild rumour: Turkey made it's usual bi-weekly declaration of war on the Axis.
Report: Enemy columns crossing the desert by Z'Mos from Esc. Sceleidima and attacking Michili.
Action: 339 moved off at 45 minutes notice (Just before teatime but we managed to get a mash first.)
Observation: Roads crowded. Engineers mining all the bridges and defiles. Men going to battle laughing, gay, singing. Thumbs up!
