May 25–27, 1945

May 26 — We left Zielst at 9:30 A.M. and arrived at Army H.Q., Hengelo at about 2 P.M., but did not get away from there until 9 P.M. so did not arrive back home until the middle of the night.

May 27 — Had a very bad cold, but was very busy so could not go to bed. Our first draft of eighteen men for the Army of Occupation arrived. No. 10 F.S.U. and three nurses were called away.
