Understated diary entry

July 1942Whilst looking through my granddad’s log book from WWII, I was struck by this entry:  for what must have been an absolutely terrifying moment in time, which happened 3768 weeks ago, on 02 July 1942, comes across as so matter-of-fact in the way it was written up.  As a friend said to me, “Within those few lines, lies an entire film.”
