Cold windy and wet.  Play hockey in the afternoon on the village green – quite a good game, and a change to have some violent exercise.  Visit The Proctor’s after dinner.

As usual wet and windy.  Course goes out in motor lorries for a scheme near Ham Street.  The most notable incident was the dive of a lorry (in which I, a couple of bicycles, and half a dozen other officers were) into a deep ditch – for no reason whatsoever.  Result no injuries – but a fearful mix up inside the lorry!
