Tuesday 10th December 1935

Jellicoe class began field training. Marched down to the loader deck, where each man received a rifle, bayonet and belt. Later on we were shown how to put on the belt (with bayonet dangling in sheath) and hold the rifle without looking too foolish. Smith made the classic blunder – dropped his rifle.

Met Father later on. He gave me some beer and five bob. Saved the situation!

I nearly forgot the days work! At 11 o’clock Mr Val said I was to clear out Edgware Road, with Newman, his boy and Bolton. (Boltons first trip since the General Strike.)
