January 15 Tuesday
To-night was speaking to a Sergeant from a Hospital at Calais. I was & wasn't surprised to hear what the Germans have done there. The main streets in ruins and hundreds of Civilians fleeing Southwards 15,000 left in 10 days. The Government are supplying vans, etc for their removal. At their Hospital they have built a dugout that cost £2,500-0-0 but it is absolutely bomb-proff.
I wonder why I am in the thick of things so – Calais with its air raids & now fire. To be at a C.C.S. I am envied by many. They say they get the real thing at a C.C.S. Yes but one wants to be very strong to stand the strain – Work has not ceased for me for 2 months – I do pray for strength.
