24th June 1943

Glorious sunny morning, clear sky, light S.W. wind, but I got up very late.  As I went up the hill to Lawford, the cuckoos were calling everywhere, along the valley.

Capt. Folkard was at the office before me, but said nothing.  Heard today that on Tuesday evening two of the Womens' Land Army girls left their billet at eleven o’clock at night, taking their luggage, and drove away with two Americans in a jeep.  Their landlady called to tell us this, and said that she would not have them back if they returned, as they had been in the house 10 weeks and had not had a bath during that time.

Busy all day, and did not get back until late.  Lovely evening.
