Friday 8th September 1933

River afternoon in the dinghy. Went as far as Odder. Returning I rowed back to Pyewipe without being tired – feathering all the way. And I only learned to row in July. Good progress.

This weekend – Torksey! At home I found a telegram from cousin Marjorie – “Send Stephen Thornton Monday Urgent Writing!” What is it? Can it be?

(2005 This was the beginning of a plan by my family to get me a proper job. Did they know of my resolution to join the Army, 19th September? Marjorie of course was my half sister but I did not know this at the time.)

Still the days are hot; but it is becoming colder at night. What a wonderful summer!
