May 25, 1942
We started out bright and early with “B” Squadron Tanks on a landing and invasion scheme. Four T.L.C. (Tank Landing Craft) were loaded at one beach with Tanks and Carriers and we started. Once craft ran on the rocks and there we sat high and dry. At 2:30 the tide had gone out sufficiently for me to climb down and walk ashore. Raining hard tonight – roads almost impassible. Col. Halmer arrived tonight to take the sanitary duties off my hands. Tomorrow we go with the “A” and “C” on a scheme.
