Too wet for training in open so retired to empty hut for morning course. In afternoon paraded before Major Knight and filled in papers for boarding. Asked a lot of questions but told nothing.
Saturday Feb 20
Just check parade in morning then free for rest of day. In afternoon visited “Jewish Girls Training Farm” just outside Hasdera. Rained most of time so unable to view farm properly but seemed very interesting. Girls spend generally two years here – first six months is spent in all kinds of work then onwards whichever type they prefer. Have only 10 acres but keep cows, poultry etc. Also nursery for plants. Poultry is worked on the Electric Light system. Great entertainment while we were there as 40 refugee children from Poland and Russia arrived to stay for several months.
Sunday Feb 21

Monday Feb 22
