War Journal - Oct. 18, 1944

It has rained almost continually for a week now so no missions could be pulled. I was on guard duty last night again. There was a driving wind & rain all night. Went into Beauvais tonight with Pehr & Strange to get saw & hammer to build our tent up. Ate supper in a French Hotel even though it is still forbidden. The meal was not too good but eating at a table made the food good. I sold two packs of my cigarettes @ 50f each. The Frenchmen thought they got a bargain & I felt like a heel for taking their money - but I took it anyway! Our entire crew is on alert again but the weather is still terrible.
