Sunday 11th April 1937

A days’ driving with Barton. Rayleigh, Chelmsford, Colchester, Manningtree and Clacton. I drove to Clacton, he drove most of the way back. Beer near Colchester at the Hammer and Trowel, lunch by the roadside a little further on. Pot of tea near Clacton at a lonely and rambling country house. Cooks Green Farm Guest House was it’s pretentious title.

Got to the Lobster Smack, Canvey Island, just before 7 p.m. and rushed in when the doors opened. Called for a final drink at the Victory Bar (8 o’clock) but Esther proved so attractive that we stayed there until closing time.

It is now 11:20 and though not drunk, I don’t feel 100% sober so I guess I’ll go to bed.
