Felt quite glad to be alive this morning. Had a busy day in the office, and took Robin for a run tonight. Got him harnessed single handed, and he went very well.
Poulter told me late tonight that a notice was put on the screen at the Regal ordering all Canadians to report to their units at once. At the Liberal Club there was a rumour that they are all being sent back to Canada at once.
No relief firewatcher at the Holly Trees tonight. What a farce this firewatching is. No water or sand on the Castle roof yet.
Rather a strange item recorded in the “Manchester Guardian” yesterday, perhaps illustrating the temper of Wales. The Secretary of the Welsh Nationalists was charged at Caernarvon Police Court for refusing to submit to a medical examination. He had already been removed from the Register of Conscientious Objectors as he had appealed on political grounds. He now stated in Court that he did not feel he could serve in the English Army. The magistrates fined him £5. In England he would have been imprisoned and then re-arrested and held for an army escort.
