We had our inspection at 9:00 and everything was OK. After inspection I had to make a large stencil 3X4 & then stencil 10 large signs. I finished at 4:00 and after shaving & taking a shower I drove over to Warner’s with Blackie Blackburn. Had several beers & then Mary came after me at 6:30.

The Capt came up this morning early & I had to drive him to Marks hall to get all of our equipment turned in & the Capt to get his affairs settled before we left for another field. We had dinner at the Hall & the WACS were cooking & boy we had a steak & potatoes & gravy & did I eat.  After lunch we came back to Saling & the drivers were waiting to take our lab trailer away. After they had gone the Capt & Slate left for London. Slate is going to bring back another truck. After they had shoved off I went over to Braintree to the Wiseman’s & had tea with them & bid them good bye. I am invited down this weekend & if possible I’m going to get off & take them up. Their daughter Eva, who is in the WRENs, is coming home & they want me to meet her.
