Today I dragged out Grandad’s Diary thinking its “been a while” since I last time I posted an entry, it was a year ago today. Guess that proves 2016 was a busy year. So moving into 2017 lets see how much of this I can transcribe. Still loads of photos and entries to go. Happy New Year.

Friday June 25
This morning went for breakfast – immediately afterwards four of us walked along canal until 9.30AM. In afternoon usual swim. Much traffic passing through canal – especially invasion boats & barges – seems likely something will soon happen. Evening short stroll along canal.
Saturday June 26
Just another day – swimming etc. Played cards during evening then guard.
Sunday June 27
Washing etc in morning. Swim afterwards. Pipe band at hospital marching & playing for the patients. Evening began writing.
Monday June 28
Orders issued for everyone be able to swim – amazing number that cannot do same. Beautiful day at canal – hardly a ripple. Still many boats passing through – showing benefit of Tunisia campaign these day. Finished writing at night.
