Thursday 16th January 1941

Life is fairly steady. We have not been shelled for three days and there is little work to do apart from the usual shifts on the exchange – and that is working well, giving us no trouble. We get out of bed at about 8 o'clock (if not on duty) by which time it is warm, sunny, and time for breakfast.

There have been several NAAFI consignments up, so that now have plenty of cigarettes and tobacco. Personnel around the exchange do a good job of reading nowadays and there's quite a trade in book “swapping”. The weather is marvellously warm, so that greatcoats, gloves, scarves and pullovers have been discarded. Thus placidly (for the present) we serve our country.
