Jan. 14, 16 & 17, 1943

Jan 14: Left early this morning by Staff car for 2nd Field Ambulance. Was supposed to stay there for one week, but talked myself out of it in 2 1/2 days.

Jan. 16: Driven home by Col. Mater, John and I spent the evening together.

Jan. 17: Sunday – Jack Jenner came up to the room to see me and say good bye before sailing for Africa. He and Tommy Johnson are being sent over and attatched to the to the 1st Army in Tunisia. Went down to Spofforths to supper. Air Raid over London and South England tonight in retaliation for the raid over Berlin on Saturday. Poop and Stoney came in and all the letter writing and other work was brought to a close – we talked until quite late and then went to bed. Stoney I believe is leaving about the last of the month.
