Cosgriff’s Diary: Friday 9th May 1941
Well like most great things, they do have to come to an end. As quickly as it seemed to begin the Simpson Prize trip for 2011 has wound up. The last few days were a blur of buses, shopping and food. It seemed that everyone wanted to get their last empty spaces in their cases filled so we hit the Bazaar for the last time.
Bryant’s Diary: Friday 2nd May 1941
Artillery could be heard all day as the battle continues. It appears as if the [G]ermans have captured 14 outer perimeter posts, but have not penetrated beyond them. Some big German planes came extremely low today bombing and machine gunning, but three and possibly four were brought down by S.A.A fire. Fred Legge of “C” Coy was killed accidentally today by an Italian hand grenade.
Bryant's diary: Friday 25th April 1941
We spent all day making dug-outs and erecting wire. Our area was bombed by German aircraft but without result. I was at company H.Q. at the time and the Sergeant-Major was pointing out to the Captain the new British bombers. Next we heard a whistle, then a roar and the mob just dived for shelter. A great judge he is. More canteen goods arrived tonight with some mail.
