Thursday 4th April 1935

Mad Willy and I walked into a room marked at the door by a card – “Paints, Varnishes and Enamels Exam”

Glanced at the first question – Coal tar distillation, naphtha and naphthalenes – and my heart sank. Looked at the second question – making a Copal varnish – and my heart rose again…

A hard paper, on the whole. Worked until 9.21, then Mad Willy and I came away, both cheerily pessimistic. God! I hope I haven’t failed!
