26 May 1914; Tuesday

Got up 7.45. Fine morning. Busy all day. Went to practice at night after playing for Mr Lawson’s class. Decided, after a lot of discussion to go to Haydon Bridge and get our teas there. Called up station at night and tried to get to know something about the trip. Mother in bed bad1.

  1. “Bad” is North-Eastern English vernacular for “ill”. ALL’s mother suffered from angina.
