Oct. 16, 1942
Col. Mataoe – new O.C. (officer commanding) of 2nd Field Ambulance inspected our R.A.P. (Regimental Aid Post) and stayed for dinner. Recieved my notice to report to Buckingham Palace on Oct. 27 for Investiture. John and I will go up on Monday and return Tuesday night. I also was nominated by the DDMS to address the Brighton Medical Society on Oct. 29 – subject “The experiences and impressions gained by a Regimental Medical Officer on the Dieppe raid.” Tonight Mrs. Harrison is holding a house warming party and tomorrow morning I got to London to meet Marje Florendine at Paddington Station at 3:45 p.m. Quite a week.
