12 mile route march and bayonet drill in afternoon.
Tuesday Dec 15th. Same as yesterday, but lecture in afternoon. Heard final results of shooting. My scores were:-
Instruction Test. 102 out of 120.
Recruits Standard. 77 out of 85.
Trained Mans’. 61 out of 87.
Wednesday. Another midnight alarm, but nothing came of it. Attacked towards Dove in the morning. Kit inspection after. Stayed in with Stan, as usual.
Thurs. The Scarborough Bombardment by the Germans was the evident cause of the alarm. More manoeuvres. Played piano for sing song at Y.M. at night.
Fri Dec 18th. Route march Chartham and back via Harbledown. I will remember this march. The country was very well varied and rugged and although it was winter one could see what a picturesque place it was.
