June 10, 1942

Had demonstration of demolition (Bruce Trotter)– Churchill Tank knocking down a big house in West Cowes. Nothing left of it. At supper time Bill Purdy gave a demonstration with his Tank flame thrower – 50 yards – really a terrible weapon. Tomorrow morning we go by sea on a longer scheme – probably two or three days.
