I go down to the Club for a night and then to Alwaye by “wog” bus. Arrive in Bangalore and go to the office to discover that one Pimsen has been suggested by ACSEA as my relief, subject to AOC’s consent. Also an official letter saying I am ‘tour expired’ and will be repatriated to the UK – though when, it does not say. Most people hang around two months or so before they are called up, but no doubt I shall be an exception and take longer. Or they might even change their minds again and keep me in India!
I go and play some squash but not much good. Also I get a shot of T.A.B. and cholera at the same time and feel lousy for a couple of days. Albert goes to Vantngen in Mysore with my skins.
