Sunday 20th September 1942

I have been able to buy ½ lb of Lambert and Butler's “Waverly Mixture.” It is seldom obtainable out here. In peace-time – so very long ago – I hardly smoked anything else. The first few puffs, and the familiar smell, brought pleasant memories as soon as I lit my pipe. The first thing I thought of was the road between Thorpe and Egham; then of The Red Lion Inn and Surrey days.

(I will now refrain from making any heart-breaking comments... or bitter cries)
