Wednesday, July 31, 1918: “opportunities for learning”

Wednesday. July 31st.     Got an R.A.F. parcel yesterday, one today, and hear that I’m getting two tomorrow.  So now it seems as though I’m fairly embarked on calm weather as regards food parcels – and even should mine slacken off somewhat, Miller’s should be arriving very shortly.  Only clothes worry me now.  I’ll make no further mention of the arrival of food parcels, as I keep a special note of them, and of letters, in another book.  The R.A.F. application for our removal to a special R.A.F. camp has been officially rejected; and I must say I’m jolly glad.  In no other camp would I get the fine opportunities for learning Spanish and French, and for chess as well, which I find here.
