Monday 15th May 1933

A bad nights sleep. Sunny morn. Breakfast over, we all went our ways as is the custom in YHA.

Stopped at Warwick and I visited the County Police H.Q. Filled in an application and had my chest measurement etc. taken. Arithmetic exam. Should I actually be engaged? A snack in the car, then back for dictation. The Inspector. The great man – “Stand and face the Chief Constable!”

Not accepted – chest two inches below standard. Finis. Coventry, Leicester, by green fields and smooth grey roads. Applied for a job as errand boy to a fruiterer in the Clarendon Park district. (Hope I don’t get it). And so to Lincoln. Since Thursday we have touched 14 counties!
