Friday 12th April 1935

Dashed into work full of enthusiasm. The colours seemed less sticky, the tinting less difficult. It was a happy experience, telling people, “Oh, I passed the exam!”

Amusing incident when my instructor Barwell made a mistake as he was tinting up for an Egyptian green. Wanted 20 gallons but produced 100! Put in too much ultramarine. Result a very deep turquoise! Told him I’d make the most of his fall from grace.

Yes, a happy day.
