Private Diary of J.K. Dick Cunyngham Br Gen

PoW

BLANKENBURG 1/11 MARK bei BERLIN

Germany

 

Sunday July 7th.  Fine but windy.  Wrote to DD in the morning.  Played Norton in Tournament after lunch – he gave me ½ 15 & beat me – 7/5, 2/6 & 6/8.  A very even game which lasted 2 hours – Youth & better training told in the end.  Both feet blistered from the Canteen shoes with linoleum soles & am very stiff.  Sat in garden in sun but sheltered from the wind after tea.  2 British (Norton & Hatfield) & 2 Frenchmen left in for Semi-finals.  My roses are now in full bloom in the window & look very well, but they soon lose their beautiful Salmon colour after coming fully out & turn into a rather common pale pink.
