Private Diary of J.K. Dick Cunyngham Br Gen
Mainz Blankenburg Mark
Friday June 7th. Had a hot breakfast for first time since April 11th consisting of Semolina porridge, fruit, tea & bread & butter. Hope to save something for breakfast daily now. Harris knocked at the door about 7 a.m., left the coffee in the sitting room and disappeared, but I got him in the end to come & attend to my wants, clean boots, brush cloths etc. Perhaps when he knows what to do he will be all right. Another bread parcel for me from Copenhagen dated May 11th, very mouldy as usual.
Shall be glad when they send biscuits instead. Rumour that Medical Officers are going away tomorrow. Hot day not feeling up to much walking so tried working at Shorthand instead. Time I got another letter, fear they take a long time in the censor’s office, of which there are 2, one in Camp & one in the Town.
Instructions how to act in case of air-raids read out on parade, viz evacuate square – if out for walk gain shelter of trees, if in open lie down. Bed at 10.15 p.m. in view of early walk in morning.
