Fine again today.
Today we had another lecture from the Senior Medical Orderly about Typhoid Fever.
Following this Mr Rowland Tims gave us a lecture on all branches of the Police Force & asked us if we had any special qualifications to put in an application for any of these branches.
After a lot of difficulty in making up my mind I put in an application for Mounted. The wireless branch does not attract me, though to return to the B.B.C. I suppose I should go into this branch but I will try to get into the Mounted and perhaps transfer from that branch if I should find I have erred in my judgement.
We had our law exam results today I had 82%. Highest in ‘C’
 Mr Rowland Tims joined the Palestine Police on 17.6.1939 as British Constable 526, was promoted Sergeant in March, 1942 and appointed Acting Assistant Supt in 1946 becoming a Platoon Commander in the PMF in 1947
Prior to signing up for the
Police, Dad was working for the Palestine BBC as a
I’m guessing from this and Dad’s references to ‘A’ & ‘B’ Squad that he must have been in ‘C’ Squad! I know… get my detective skills!
Today we are going to Jenin where we draw our rifles & proceed to the range. We left Shafa Amr by truck at about & arrived in Jenin at . We fired rifle, L.M.G. and T.S.M.C. I am sorry to say that as other than my single shots rifle I was not very great. The T.S.M.C. stopped every round & between it & Mr Tims I did very poorly on this weapon. The day cleared up so that by mid-day we discarded our Denham jackets. Our haversack rations were soon disposed of at lunchtime after which I met Raymond Bloomfield & had a chat with him for a short while.
It was dark when we got back to Shafa Amr & we were all very tired and dirty.
