June 25 & 27, 1945

June 25 — We returned to our billets in Enschede and shortly after arriving Mac and Ronnie came for a visit. Ronnie is spending the night here. 6 FDS as we know it does not exist now, the boys are scattering all over the Country. The Unit has been notified that new Officers are chosen. Dibb and I are both gone, Mac goes next Monday — my draft papers have not come through yet, but I am expecting them daily.

June 27 — Side Medina arrived here today, he will take over the Unit when I leave. Just received word to report to ADSM Army troops on Monday morning. Do not know what is in the wind. Am expecting Ronnie, Hans and Mac up tomorrow. Tonight there is an Ensa show here. Things are getting very monotonous. The Ensa show was very good. It has played to us in Worthing two years ago.
