Up at 6.50 and got my boots and socks off the pipes, then went to breakfast. had All Bran and bacon and tomato, then on parade, drilled till 10.30, then had Vickers lecture after break. Went to dinner, beef, greens, roast potatoes. I had it early as I was going on crash guard. It was cancelled, so I went back and had another dinner. Rang Doris up twice but could not get through. After dinner, had gun drill but played nap in between. I lost ***. Got dressed, had tea, sausages, cake, then biked over to Rodwell by the tracks coming out at Compton Bassett I was soaked. Doris met me with Lyn. She put my clothes to dry and then we read Country and it stopped raining so I got back dry.
