12 March 1914; Thursday

Got up shortly after 7 o’clock. Drilled. Wrote a bit. At work in good time. Not much to do. Mr Briggs came at night. We played until after 9 o’clock. Charlie sang a few songs. Went down to see Mr Morley afterwards and arranged with him for a few “darts†”1. Posted letter for Joe last thing about a job at Newcastle.

  1. “Darts” is a possible reading, but being in inverted commas, it evidently had some special meaning at which it is now impossible to guess.
