Private Diary of J.K. Dick Cunyngham Br Gen
BLANKENBURG 1/11 MARK bei BERLIN
Wednesday July 10th. Letter & postcard from DD. Parcel from Red Cross – food. Shall only get 61 days pay as Br. Gen. & then revert to Regt Rk. Must plan out accordingly – Had meeting of Room representatives & Secretaries various funds after Roll Call. Every fund appears to be separate, with no estimate of expenses etc. Hope to be able to get a general levy to include all games, library, gas etc & prevent as at present about 6 people collecting money at end of each month.
Very hot morning but slight rain in the afternoon. Played foursome golf after tea. Self & Farmer beat Hatfield & Sipiagni 7 & 6. Had some German Burgundy for dinner at 9.50 mks per bottle. Special brand kept by Lt. Burgkman who says there isn’t a great stock of it.
