8th February 1940

Went over to the Kelso sale this p.m. Most of the carriages went for scrap. The mail-phaeton made 35/-, [shillings] and I bought it from the scrap dealer for 50/- after the sale, to prevent him destroying it. Now my problem is how to get it home, as it is too big for Bob.

However, I’m glad I’ve got it, and who knows? I might drive it one day.

There is still heavy snow in the country, although the weather is warmer.

For further information about the Kelso auction sale, see Eric's previous diary entry on 1st February 1940.
