Private Diary of J.K. Dick Cunyngham Br Gen


Mainz Blankenburg Mark



Monday June 3rd. Usual interview with German General, am told tone of my letter points to the fact that I wish to control the Camp!  These interviews are quite useless & don’t propose to continue them.  Hot Bath at 11 a.m.  Some indignation in Camp at letter written by officer (Robertson) who certainly made some offensive remarks.  Bousfield approached me about making him apologise but as I have repeatedly warned officers they must take the consequences if they exceed them.  Ogilvy & Finch came in during the afternoon – O – to try & make me make his Education Scheme compulsory!  F with one of his usual wild schemes.  They are both very energetic & one cannot help admiring them, but fear they don’t always consider how their schemes can be carried out.  A little quiet thought beforehand would be an advantage.

Walked 2 miles before, and 1 mile after supper. Still cold & cloudy.
