Aug. 17–18, 1945

Aug. 17 — Busy doing office work most of the day — then in the evening phoned Wynne Rolfe. Am going over to see her on Sunday.

Aug. 18 — Painting up boxes etc. Am now going to have my after dinner sleep. The rumour is that we sail one week from today. Tonight after supper, some Sergeants from the 14th (Calgary Regiment) looked me up, so we went to the Queen’s Hotel and the Swan. Those present were Price, Morgan, Howard, Patterson, Hobbins, Davis, McCall, McKay, McFadden. It was a real old timers get together. All of us left Calgary together and were together until Italy. It was the first time I had seen them since.
