30 Nov: Friday (8.35 pm)

    Billet rose at 9.15 am this morning – longest lie-in so far. Probably wouldn’t have got up even then if the weather hadn’t been so cold. It was murder during the night after the stoves died out. Mucked about all morning until the passes came in and set off for home at 12.45 pm on 48 hr leave. Travelled as far as Sheffield with Brian and Nick. Had afternoon tea on the train which cost 2/6. Not bad. 

    Arrived home at 7.00 pm. Ma & Pa are out somewhere. Nick and I got pulled up at the camp gates for not saluting a Wing Cmdr. Got off with a warning.
