Fine, sunny, but rather cold. Many ‘planes going out, with dreadful noise, between 7 and 9.
Still quite a lot of plums about.
Have had no chance to ask the District Officer about [taking some] leave, he is so busy, and out nearly all day. He went off to Writtle at 12.
Cloudy and rain at times. Tried to get off early, but everything delayed me. Finally going up
Ipswich Road, got a puncture on a
nail. Walked through St. John’s Road to Fox Street, to Clayton’s, and borrowed a
cycle, leaving mine at garage to be mended.
In Ipswich Road
saw a car going along with a gas-bag on the roof, almost exactly where I saw
the same thing in the last war, one day when I was walking with Father, in the
days when we used to stroll through the “Partridge Fen” and along Rat Ditch.
