Saturday 12th September 1942

Dewhurst and I were due for the long-awaited pass today. But to our chagrin the scheme of issue of passes has been altered. You can now go out any evening (or half day) when not on duty. Fine! But under the new scheme one is on duty every other day... And we are both on duty from 7:30p.m. tonight until 7:30 p.m. tomorrow night. The bitter injustice of this made us all fed-up.

However late this afternoon an event occurred which made me, at least, more happy. My mail arrived! A thick bundle of letters – 20 in all. I was sitting in the Beacon Hut reading until 11p.m.
