Tuesday 21st January 1936

The King died at five minutes to twelve last night.

A windy, sunny day; flags at half mast. I saw a newspaper placard, “The King flies to London”. The new King – Edward VIII.

RNVR as usual. Jellicoe passed out for field training. We were asked to wear black ties until after the funeral.
