Sept. 26, 1942

Have just had the parcels packed for Cal to take home. Four Commando knives and some other small things. Harold and a Captain Southam were here for lunch today. They are on the ranges near here. Am sort of half expecting Ed Brown tomorrow.

    I was attending Sunalta School with Don Alexander when he brought one of those commando knives to show and tell. (Did his mother know?) But we weren’t allowed to touch it. ….Neil Manning

      Hi Neil. Thanks for your comment! I’m going to have to ask my uncle about that. I’m sure my grandmother had no idea that he took the knife to school with him for show and tell. My dad still has one of those knives. I’ll have to post a photograph of it. And thanks for reading. My dad says ‘hello’.
