10th April 1941
Went up this evening to see Daven Soar [EJR's schoolfriend], home for Easter with his wife and child. All is well with them. We went out for a couple of drinks at the “Berechurch Arms” [now the "Huntsman's Tavern"]and the “Leather Bottle”, both places absolutely packed. Old Daven just the same as ever. Still running after any pretty woman he sees.
