I got up yesterday the first time for ten days, and went for a walk. I felt awfully weak and am very stiff today. In fact, I haven’t troubled to get out of bed. I don’t know when I am going to get out of hospital. I still have a cough. At first, my temperature was 103, but it is normal now. There are all sorts of reforms going on here now. War bread has come into use. No one may have more than two courses for lunch or three for dinner. Soldiers may only spend up to 5/6 for dinner and 3/6 for lunch. Rail fares have increased 50%. It looks as if England is waking up to the fact that there is a War on.
