Went out to the ranges today as marker at the butts.
Wrote letters at night.
To bed early.
The second word is “butts”.
Ok, some analysis of the missing word. He usually closes his “d”s, so I think that the first 3 letters are probably “Mac”, not “Mad”. I also think that this missing word is probably the same word in the entry for the 13th, at the end of the 1st line.
The one on the 13th I think is “march”, as in “out on drill & route march”.
Is it “marker”? Thinking back to my army cadet days someone sat in the butts with a stick and pointed out where the bullet had hit the target for the benefit of the soldier who was firing.
Sounds more like “target” to me 😉 but I think that you’re right.
That does work nicely!
Sandy, would it be too much to ask for you to put a link back to the image of the diary page? Then when I need to see that page to see if I can figure out a missing word, I don’t have to scroll back day by day. Thx.
Good idea, I’ll do that in the future. I’ve been having the same problem!
