April 2, 1944 (Sunday)

Up rather late this morning but got there in time. Had inspection in the rain and after that a demonstration by two PTI’s of unarmed combat.

In the afternoon we had films of that and of camouflage. A very easy day all in all.

Wrote a blueform to Barb, a letter to Granny and to the bank, and an airgraph to Mom and to Aunt Kate. It’s been a miserable day – drizzling all the time.
