Sunday 5th July 1936

Dick and I spent the afternoon and evening at the Empire Pool, Wembley. Glorious place, depth of water varied from 18 inches to 16 foot. Mostly we swam amidships, where it was 10-11 foot.

Had tea at a cafeteria, sitting in the sunlight below a glass roof. There was music. We went in the garden; took a couple of canoes on the miniature boating lake; played deck tennis; lay in the sun until our costumes dried, then had another swim and made them wet again! (Both, very proudly, wore badges on our costumes. The old county Scout emblem, bearing the word “Lincolnshire”).
