29th Sept 1917

I have arrived at C.F.S., now starts the thing I have waited for, & worked for, for the past four months, namely flying.

First impressions of the school.

I got into conversation with some of the old hands, they told me this was a stunt school & had quite a lot of casualties there having been two or three fatal ones quite recently.

Personally, I think they were just trying to put the wind up me. The mess seems quite a good one & the officers all seem good sorts & quite sociable.
