Thursday 21st January 1937

Morning: At the works, emptying and filling ball mills as usual.

Afternoon: A sudden dash to Town, with Beach. Went to York House, to inspect the work. Chaos inside. The foreman proudly showed us the Duchess’ bedroom. “And she says to the Duke, she says, “Chase me round ere,” she says”…

The day’s toil was over by 4 o’clock and I strolled to HMS President, being the first arrival on the mess deck. Tea and a wash, and a nice Stand-easy until 6 o’clock, when drills began.

Came down by the 8:44.
