20 March 1915; Saturday

At work as usual1. Finished about 1.30. Came up with the chemist’s assistant. Went into town in the afternoon, for my papers and called at John Wilson’s and got a file and a cord† from the shop. Went down to Dr. Blair’s and got a bottle. Had walk out to Grangetown2 at night with Willie. Felt a bit better but still off form.

  1. Saturday morning working was of course normal – as it remained until the 1960s. 

  2. Grangetown is a suburb of Sunderland two miles south of Sunderland City Centre.
