Wednesday Feb 10

Day 676

Paraded before Col. Stout for Medical Boarding – do not know what I got – if anything.  At night “A Very Young Lady” – Jane Withers.

Thursday Feb 11

Day 677

On P.T again, feeling very stiff. Had run over assault course – not very hard.  In afternoon on tour to Nablus – capital of Samaria – which the last Samaritans only 207 now live.  Visited Jacob’s Well which is under care of Greek Orthodox Church.  Nearby rests Joseph’s Tomb – His seven ??? founded the tribe of Samaritans.  While visiting Samaritan’s Synagogue saw part of a hand written Old Testament done over 2000 years ago.  Samaritan themselves seem much similar to a low classed Arab.

Outside the Three-Mile Limit (1940)

Day 678

Rained in morning – did P.T and training in hail(?).  Cleared later so took a stroll through orange groves.  “Outside the Three-Mile Limit (1940)” at night.

Note – this entry completes the first diary my Grandad wrote of his experiences during World War 2 which is why the page shown at the top of the screen is blank – its the hard back cover of the journal.

Finds humour in the inappropriate. Holiday planner extraordinaire. Mum to doglets. Crazy Dachshund lady.

  1. The Samaritans were founded by the sons of Joseph — http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samaritans. Could the Colonel’s surname be “Stout”?
