21st July 1942

Arranged to go over to Boxted tonight, but was delayed so late that it was impossible to go.  Instead caught the 8.13 to Ardleigh.  Lovely warm evening, quite a crowd waiting for the train.  Very pretty girl, with fair wavy hair dressed in a green and white striped frock, waiting anxiously.  She looked hurriedly along the train when it came in, but I did not see her meet anybody.

A goods train came in while we were waiting – most interesting names on the trucks: Llay main, Llandwrach, Colwyn Bay, Northampton Gas Company, and fruit vans marked “March” or “Peterborough”.

Got to Lawford at 8.45 not a bit tired or hot.  Had supper and to bed at 11 pm, after writing this journal for a while.
