Friday 4th August 1939

Rainy weather – sudden, short showers. Slinky’s roof began to leak. Eight calls in Southend. No orders but I received one by post this morning (from Atkinson, at Chelmsford GPO) so was able to use my order book.

George and Jacko were not at drill tonight (“foretaste of things to come” I thought gloomily) but I met Jacko accidentally later on. After supper at various places, we ended with another long discussion re dreams, ideals and ambitions, sitting in the car outside his house. Sheets of rain crashed down. Slinky leaked slightly. Occasionally there was a vivid flash of sheet lightening.

Home 5 o’clock.
