Private Diary Blankenburg Mark

J.K. Dick Cunyngham Br Gen

 

Saturday Sept 7. Fine day.  General Committee meeting at 9.15 a.m. to discuss furnishing of Common Rooms.   Billiard Table dismantled & put in Franco-Belgian Dining Room.  Played golf in the morning.  Roll call at 1 p.m. & new Comdt Major Uhlig was introduced by a member of Inspection Staff from Berlin.  Played singles Tennis with H 3to 4 p.m.  Just before 5 p.m. new Comdt came to pay me his official visit & spoke English.  Thinks I am very young for a General, he is 46 & only a Major!  He has lately been in Flanders & has seen active service on East & West fronts.  Also fought in China in Boxer Rebellion & met English troops.
