Saturday, June 22, 1918: “Imagine suggesting in peace time that clothes should be baked!”

Saturday June 22nd.     Our quarters here are not bad.  Nine of us in a good sized room with large windows overlooking the downs.  There are about seven hundred of us here altogether.  Have applied to join an advanced French class, and an elementary Spanish one.  Spent afternoon having a good hot shower, and in having my clothes baked – an unnecessary precaution fortunately.  What a lot of things we’ve got used to during this war, and lately.  Imagine someone suggesting to me in peace time that my clothes should be baked!
