20 August 1914; Thursday

Got up about 7.30. Busy all day, but finished a bit sooner. Had short walk up town with Charlie. Had a bath. Read usual war news. A bit better but troubled with toothache.

Nothing very fresh from front. Our soldiers being well received in France. Official report of the loss of the “Amphion”1 and description of brave behaviour of men. Two airmen & 2 motorcar men killed in France.

  1. Amphion: See note on 7 August
