Thursday 12th September 1935

In the afternoon, Mr Val took me out in the light Bedford for a driving lesson.
(Conspicuous red ā€œLā€ ahead and astern!) My first fumbling efforts were at Bishopsgate. Met my first car on a corner ā€“ great thrill!

Went back to the Works, in case anything had happened, then out again. Roads around Thorpe. Jolly good fun. I learned how to start and stop. Upward gear changing. Steering.
