In the evening we made two journeys with ammunition. Saw a dump blown up in the distance, lighting up the sky with an intense flame for a few seconds, accompanied by a dull roar. Practising for the sports I had entered for the “mule hurdles” but as neither of my hybrids can now be tempted, coaxed, cajoled, beaten or tricked into taking the hurdles, I’ve given them up as a bad job.
