17th March 1941

About 10 o’clock this morning a dead baby was found under a bush on the Castle Ramparts. We could see the place from the office window, and could see the police and detectives taking photos and making measurements. I wonder what poor girl has done this.

Heard this afternoon that after Hull left the Holly Trees last night, just after the pubs closed, he crashed into a stationary fire-engine in Greenstead Road, giving himself a terrible black eye and quite knocking himself out. He left the Castle at 8, and came back to the Park at 10 or just after for his bike, obviously having spent a couple of hours boozing up. Today police were in making enquiries about the affair.
