Dec. 11, 1943: wounded and shelled, but sense of humour remains intact
House where I am is shelled, so they move downstairs – am visited by Col. Playfair ADMS – 1st Div. I am to be evacuated to Naples in a couple of days to 14 Gen. Hospital. Sent XIth and had Ralph brought in today. He is now looking after me. Even this place got shelled today – when the Old Folks Home gets shelled, it is time for me to move.
