Was up at 10:00 this morning. Was going to leave for Ireland today but met some very nice people so we are going to stay another day. This man I met has 10 children in the Navy. I’m invited out to see his family tomorrow at 1:00. I was lost in the blackout tonite and a Scott walked several blocks out of his way to see me home. Gee it makes me feel good for I was homesick anyway. I could be enjoying myself but try as I might it can’t be done. It’s 11:30 and I’m ready for bed.

Bombed St. Pol, France.

Was taken to the 231 Station Hospital for examination. Doc said he thought I had a ruptured disc & I was to be sent to the 65 Gen to make sure.
