1914 – November 15

Four of my old gentlemen have been sent home as useless – Arbuthnot, Timmins, Baring and Greville, a good riddance! I feel I ought to be abolished soon as I do not get a full day’s work at this job. The fleas are awful and the bugs! Poor Daisie, she must love me very much to remain here. The War drags on, one despairs of news although we never doubt as to the glorious end, but never has a great war been so devoid of news or dramatic episodes or striking victories. Thank goodness that clever but wicked little Emden has been caught at last.
