29 Nov: Thursday (12.25am)

     We didn’t have to parade this morning until 9.00 am so we got up at 8.30 am. Quite a nice lay-in. Went down to the Guardroom with a nice new haircut but was told I’d have to go again tonight to see the SP who pulled me up. Had pay parade this morning and we have another on Monday. Nothing on this afternoon.

(11.30 pm)    Just arrived in from Cheltenham with Nick and Don. Been to ‘Coliseum’ and saw ‘Beyond Mombassa’. Caught last bus back. We managed to wangle a 48 hr pass starting at 12.00 tomorrow. Haircut passed OK on second inspection.
