Up at 7.30 and got dressed. Put things away and cleaned up. Had breakfast, liver and bacon, cornflakes, then on parade without webbing on rifles. We marched round to armoury and AC2 were taking a trade test. They had rifle fire, then we all had gun drill and firing with twin Lewis. It was cold. Then break, read notice stating that we could have 35 fags a week on Mondays at pre budget price. After break, finished firing and went on foot drill.
