Sunday 22nd December 1935

After tea I put on my best suit (that is to say, my only suit) and went for a stroll (also wearing RNVR tie!) Just outside Staines, a passing motorist gave me a lift and took me to Chertsey – I hadn’t been going there...

I took a footpath which brought me to Thorpe – the little church, with it’s lighted windows and white frost on the roof. Had a few drinks at the Red Lion and a talk with the News. Back by Anne Boleyn footpath. The ground, hard. Ice and white frost around. Clear, cold, dry night.
