27th April 1940
Heard a cuckoo at Bourne Mill this morning. Men of 26 registered for military service today. The ginger-headed consciencious pacifist stood outside the Labour Exchange all day, holding up a pacifist placard. He is a brave man. Crowds in the Museums. It is pathetic to see the young lads in shorts cycling up to the Castle on Saturdays. I wonder how many are having their last holidays?
