BLANKENBURG 1/11 MARK bei BERLIN

Germany

 

Monday July 1st.  At last a real fine warm day.  Tennis started 8 a.m. – 2 letters one from DD one from Charlie.  2 parcels, 1 Red Cross, containing very little, & a clothing parcel, the other shoe turned up all right, am gradually getting together some kit.  Played golf in the morning, Sipi & I beat Hatfield & Evans 3 & 2.  Played tennis at 2.30 p.m. for an hour & didn’t get as blown as I thought I should, in shoes from Canteen with linoleum soles (11/50 M) were rather uncomfy.  Hatfield has lent me a pair of grey flannels with a red stripe down them, it is a treat to get out of breeches & boots.  Felt like a schoolboy after tennis going to Canteen for Ersatz Beer & a bag of cherries!  Had cold shower bath before tea – washing came back from Berlin, looking very nice but evidently more cleaning process than washing with soap.
