J. O. M. Ashley diary entry February 15th – 18th 1919

Saturday 15th February 1919

Lydd – Earls Court

Catch 9.17am from Lydd which gets me home to Teddington just after lunch.  Pick up my Blues, proceed to Redcliffe Square and enjoy another very good evening at the Empress Rooms.

Sunday 16th February 1919

Earls Court

A pleasant placid day, including going to a concert at the Albert Hall.

Monday 17th February 1919

Earls Court – Lydd

Return home to get rid of my blues and go again to the Empress Rooms at 4pm for another couple of hours dancing before leaving with a great rush for Lydd by the 7.15pm.

Wet of course.

Tuesday 18th February 1919

Lydd

Wet.

Am delighted to be asked to exercise Col. Phillips new charger – which turns out a jolly good mount.  Take him down to the sea to-day; but he seems to have exercised me more than I him!
