Oct 11, 1943

Oct. 11 – Have had a few very busy days – we have reorganized the whole section, rearranged all our supplies and are now completely set up as an M.R. room and admitting office Am also giving a course of lectures at 11 a.m. each day. there is a lot of work to do. A lot of Malaria and a lot of Infective Jaundice – also thousands of desert sores.. The Btn are all coming back from the line and are rallying in this vicinity. What the next move is I do not know. Have heard nothing more of the trip to England. We are living in desert tents pitched on the veranda of a big chateau.
