Friday 6th December 1935

Delivering calendars in the Whitehall area, with Newman in the small van (his boy crouching uncomfortably in the waist). Office of Works. Architects offices on top floors.

Walking down a passage in Deans Yard, Westminster, I found myself in a very war-like atmosphere. The square was full of many boy-soldiers in various squads, being drilled by other boys. Rifles lying on the pavement… OTC

Back to the works, load delivered, by 5 o’clock. Called for my cycle, at a repair shop in Staines. Reflector, lamp, battery; Repaired chain; Spokes in rear wheel – 4/8d.

Took a book to the library. Wrote home, enclosing a district map and the RNVR handbook; Cleaned my shoes and had a bath. Then it was bedtime.
