August 31, 1942

At 6 a.m. the convoy leaves Seaford – I have my truck with Ralph and Furman – Cal and I drive in the Gyp. Very heavy rain during part of the trip. We pass through Brighton, Shoreham, Winchester, Amesbury, Stonehenge, Wincanton, Langport, Taunton, Williton, Dunster to Minehead, a distance of about 200 miles. This is in the north of of Somerset facing the Bristol Channel. Our camp is on a high hill, overlooking the Town and valley. The scenery is the most perfect I have ever seen. The Range is about two miles beyond the camp.
