Monday 31st December 1934

Back to discipline, orderly routine, and glad of it! In the Edge Runner Dept. at the Works. All busy, scraping a machine. Nothing else to do.

After a cheery evening I am alone in the lounge. Everyone else gone to a dance. The time is 11.40p.m. The old year is nearly gone. Will light a “Craven A” and play the piano, there’s nobody to annoy!

12.01a.m. As 1934 became 1935 I was (still alone) trying vainly to play the refrain of “Sweetheart Darlin”.
The bells of Egham Church just against the pub, are ringing the New Year in.
Hail, 1935! You have begun!
