Over 60, with a son 32 and a daughter 22. Retired on 26 October, 2007, after 37 years with the company. No matter, I've led an interesting life with much travel in Southeast Asia, the Pacific Region, and a little bit of Africa.

Page 33 - January 3rd

Friday 3rd dawned cold but a little cloudy. Reveille played at 7:30. Practice from 9:30 to 12, & at 2 o'clock there was a 2 mile run, but needless to say I did not start (too old). Rather a decent day.

Wednesday 3rd started off with very heavy rain at dawn. Very heavy clouds around, and showers continuing. Very nice indeed.

Too old? That's an interesting aside. He would have been what, 29 at the time? Certainly in today's military, that isn't too old for exercise. Interesting revelation about the contemporary attitudes.

He would have been 31 (born October 1887).
