Thursday 27th March 1941


George seized Grant's rifle (we've changed the Ross for a Lea-Enfield) but the magazine promptly dropped off! Grant stoically bore the ensuing criticism... This was my first definite experience of Jerry and machine gunning. The plane seemed rather slow and antique.

8p.m. It was dusty – a high wind – all yesterday, all last night and all today. A few quiet, windless lulls but now it is blowing harder than ever. Snug but very hot in our dug-out. We have an Iti accumulator wired-up and two 3.5v bulbs are illuminating the place. It's almost a gale outside; sand is drumming on the roof like rain.
