2nd July 1940

Had two very quiet nights on Sunday and Monday. Wrote to the Ministry of Supply today. Our Castle Vaults were inspected today by an official from the Ministry of Home Security. When I told him that they must be the most ancient shelters in use, he pointed out that the Royston Cave was being used as a shelter.

Drawing out road section tonight. Supper at Rose’s.

The official from the Ministry of Supply must have been unaware of the age of the vaults under Colchester Castle when he made his remark!

Yes indeed - I suspect EJR was unimpressed with the official's remarks!
