Private Diary of J.K. Dick Cunyngham Br Gen
Mainz Blankenburg Mark
June 1st Saturday. Cool day. Worked shorthand in morning. Got Finch to see new orderlies to explain scheme & give them a talking to. More parcels issued from 3-4.30 p.m. I got a Y.M.C.A. parcel same as Drummond’s, B.F. got his first bread parcel from Copenhagen dated May 18th, which looks quite good. In consequence we had good supper, fried our potatoes in the cheese butter & had rice & jam. Mainzprings performed at 4 & 7 p.m. quite a good show, hope to be able to keep them together but hear they are sometimes difficult to manage. Milton Hayes for instance was too ill to perform but Canteen revived him. Am sleeping ever so much better now.
