Thursday 31st January 1935

Doings at the works. Arthur Simpkins of the making house thrashed a lorry driver who called him “lazy bugger”. Both suspended for a month.

Cheese and beer in the bar at Bells of Owzeley. Sat in a bow window overlooking the river.

Afternoon: In the White Room painting can lids and thinking how dull it all was. Paint and cans and brushes – no thrills. “Mr Lever wants you…” “We want you to go back to the making house, Dawson, for a month. We’re short there…”
