November 11th 1940 – Karachi

Had the first game of Rugby since “Blighty” the other day – didn’t manage too badly except for having bars in my boots and so unable to move. It is played on the mud flats here, quite softish though I cut my knees a bit. Went out with Gillespie in the desert yesterday evening and I shoot a hare and a partridge – there’s some sand grouse about, though out of range. A hell of a wind today and I do three bad landings, Gogte using the engine each time to save the undercarriage. Hope I’m better tomorrow.
