11th April 1942

Uncle Frank went down to Frinton this morning.

I was carting logs all the afternoon.

This morning we had a letter from [the War Agricultural Executive Committee at] Writtle regarding the non-evacuation of farm workers in event of an invasion. Lot of rubbish. Quite impossible to get any sense out of the Borough Police, whose only available list consists of dairy-workers only, amounting to about 180. Actually there are about 250 people in the Borough employed in agriculture.
