Nov. 1, 1943
Nov. 1 – Nov. 1: Very successful day – bought three lovely turkeys, two chickens and two dear little pigs today. We will not starve today. These were for the Officers Mess. Bought two chickens for ourselves this morning. We are entertaining E.B. Quehl to a bed time lunch tonight. Took a few snaps of the camp today. We had a really grand lunch and sat and talked until very late – nearly 10 p.m.
Extended journal – Invasion of Sicily and Italy
Nov. 1 On a bet, went on a scrounging expedition and brought back in one hours time, three turkeys, two chickens and two pigs. The food still keeps up. Brigade meetings are held almost daily and at present Isernia is the Town picked for our winter quarters – it lies a few miles beyond Campobasso – but is held one day by Germans and the next by Canadians – so we are afraid when its ownership is finally seated – the Town will not amount to anything much.
