24 November 1915; Wednesday

Usual day’s work. Football match between RAMC and HLI1 and HLI won 4/1. Received long letter from Franchie2 Inwood. In good spirits all day. Franchie says she is ill in bed with a cold. Concert at the Y.M. and pretty good. Good soprano, tenor and bass, and hummers. Accompanist very good too.

  1. “HLI”: Highland Light Infantry. 

  2. “Franchie Inwood”: still “Miss Inwood” as recently as 25 September. The transcription of her first name is never wholly clear; it usually looks like “Franchie”, perhaps from Francesca, though “Francie”, from Frances, seems more likely.
