Sunday 14th
Church parade today, under difficult conditions wind & wet.
I held a service this evening in one of the huts Subject "Calvary" As a German plane with bombs came over we had to put lights out quickly & the service finished minus the benediction.

Monday 15
\Spent the day writing. The camp dried up a little the weather being fine. A Bright night is the sure sign of Bomb dropping activity & about 6 oclock a fleet of planes put in an appearance Search lights from all quarters made a fine sight. The Bosche dropped a bright light which hung in the Sky.
