A pitifully small number of pages today but it is not always possible to do reading while at work. The concept of having an hour’s lunch break sadly often is just that – a concept – and in practice after you have popped out for a sandwich, returned to your desk and fielded comments from colleagues and alls from contacts it is time to get back to work.
Bullet points between pages 43 – 53
* Even without the audience of the narrator and the girls from Berlin Mahkle carries on cutting through the ice and manages to make a hole over the forward hatch of the sunken barge
* Mahkle is spell bound by a talk from a former pupil about the war but realises that to get a medal he had to shoot down 40 planes and he mentions that at the start of the war it was 20 planes so things must be getting bad
Hopefully more pages will be read tomorrow…
