Mrs S went to Calne and took Philip so I did all her washing. Got tea and took Lyn to meet Bill. Lots of soldiers in Compton Bassett. Lyn was thrilled. Put Lyn to bed and Bill 'acted' nursery rhymes for her. I knitted all the evening and Bill wrote to Mrs Lucock. Supper and went up to the top gate with Bill.
