Feb. 14 & 15, 1943 – End of Diary 1

We drove up to 14th Can Gen Hosp at Holley to see Ness – who is in bed with arthritis. He has been boarded “E” and will be leaving for Canada soon. Also Gordon Duncan who has just recently joined the staff, we then drove down to Ed’s Mess, had supper and then drove home.

Feb. 15 Annual innoculation of B squadron this morning, and H.Q. Squadron this afternoon. Don’t know just when I will manage to get the other two squadrons.

10 p.m. am getting the things together to send home by Hess. Wish I could climb in with them to go too. I want Muriel to have this book as a souvenir and a brief running account of my first two year’s experience in the Army. It’s like parting with an old friend to part with this book, but from here I carry on in another diary which I hope to carry home with me. Thus endeth Volume 1. I hope you will enjoy reading it and perhaps get some idea of my thoughts and actions during all these months. Please take awfully good care of this as I prize it very, very highly and shall look forward to spending many happy hours with it when I return.
