January 23rd 1944

Out in D.D. Camp at Gudabur, like the last time. I live in the main camp and am fairly comfortable. Rumsey arranges for me to exchange my u/s camp bed. I have a jeep and so does Bill Beaman. He goes out every day to both sides and I sit in the AASC office with Ian Warren. At evening prayers Beaman or I go over the day’s air operations, being mostly imaginary aircraft. Then much gin drinking with the “pongos” (JDW: the Army) in the contractors mess. I meet Patterson (6 GR) who used to be at RMC (JDW: Sandhurst) with me.

Not so cold as last time and much more boring, though I walk out once or twice into the jungle with my field glasses to look at the birds.
