    Olive to hospital with dysentery.

    Mabel and I had the room to ourselves  ((Mrs K had by now moved out as she and her husband had got a billet together)).  One night we had gramophone (always on loan around the camp by its generous owners); Fortescues came in for recital, and we had a candle.  Adrian looked so nice by candle-light.  ((The Fortescues lived in the kitchen next to our room.))
