February 1943

For Christmas 1942, my Gpa Mike received a small journal as a gift from his Aunt Jennie. Aunt Jennie was married to his paternal uncle, John Brown. Unlike my great grandfather James, John stayed in the UK. This particular part of the journal is my favourite: 100 mile scheme, prettying up the trucks to an inspection and rehearsing for a visit and inspection by General McNaughton.
