23rd Dec 1946: a little extra meat ration for Xmas
23 Mon. Very cold, dull, rain at night. Wrote letter to Capt. Marshall. Got the groceries two days earlier as Xmas day is on Wed, the day I usually get them. Got the Xmas meat to-day a nice piece of pork and a little extra is allowed on top of the usual ration. Bought a set of three tee-to-turn tops. Also a comic clown’s head which you shoot at with a wooden shot on a piece of elastic. Decorated the Xmas cake with a star and a motto in pink icing on a white ground.
