Sunday 30th August 1942

The moon is getting old, yet the jolly old parachutists have not arrived.

Incidentally the rumours of an offensive in the desert have died down, again.
Stalingrad, surprisingly, still holds out and the Russians are starting another offensive, near Rzhev.

(“Russians fighting their way into Rzher, street by street,” says today's paper.)

Cairo has been out of bounds for some days but now 15% of the Base Depot and Training Wing are allowed out into town “after duty”. So one still has to be lucky to get a pass.
