11 July 1914; Saturday

Walked up to the town with Charlie in the morning. Met Edward Hodges in Crowtree Road and talked with him for a long time. Called at Grandmother’s on Saturday afternoon and went with Charlie and Jack to Caslaw Tate1 stall and spent most of the afternoon waiting for Jack outside the shops. Went to Roker at night and heard Lucas’s band. It was very good and there were a good many people down. Came home fairly late.

  1. If “Caslaw Tate” is correct, it is possibly Caslaw, Hayter & Tate, the principal local men’s and boys’ draper.
