April 20 & 22, 1943

April 20: Still camped on Downs. Jim and I spend every day out there but come in at nights. First Sherman Tanks arrive today, six of them. They are beauties. Spent last evening at Mrs. Freddie Adams. Had a nice evening. Phoned Spofforths. I believe she is now on the water.

April 22: Mobilization orders came through today – meaning definite establishment in definite time etc. What it means beyond that, I don’t know. Large Canadian mail yesterday. Was on the Downs today in a fog – it was miserable and mighty hard to keep from getting lost.
