Dec. 31, 1943 and Jan. 1, 1944

Dec. 31, 1943
Took over two wards in Medicine and am really enjoying myself and keeping fairly busy.

New Year’s Eve – all the officers but the one on duty went again to the Monastery for dinner. Another grand dinner and then we came home to our own New Years party. Rather tame but o.k. Ducce Ferguson was here. He is a Lt. Col. now. Also, Royal arrived as a patient. We sand the Old Year out and the New Year in.

Jan. 1, 1944
A terrible day. A very wild snow storm on, almost a blizzard and it is very cold here. I am Admitting Officer today and will be Duty Officer tonight, so was not able to return to the Monastery today. Still no word of my future movements.
