16 February 1914; Monday

Got up about 7.45. Drilled a bit. Busy all day. A row with Willie and Tom† with regard to * and the masks†. Mr Aitken showed some temper about it and blamed us for making too much nonsense on the invoices. I told Tom and Willie off for swearing and using bad language. Row in the Office. Father’s pain came on bad last thing at night. Went to bed about 12.30. Edward’s brother died at 8 o’clock on Saturday.
