08 Aug 1943, W J Carrie's wartime diary
4pm - just 7am with you - another week you will be saying. I am sorry if you were all buoyed with news of repatriation away back in January for these things take a very long time to settle. Weather has been very wet and dreary lately but we hope it is going to clear up now. Great news of the German retreat from Orel has cheered us. No other news however. Cheerio Honey. B.
