25 March 1915; Thursday

At work as usual. Went to recruiting office at night arranged to call in tomorrow night to see the doctor. They say I can arrange to go to Haltry† on Easter Tuesday. Went down and saw Mrs Furley about Luke who was not at Sunday School last Sunday.

M29 announced as sunk1. Father at the Court and the case settled.


  1. Five ships of the M29 class, including M29 itself (launched 22 May 1916), were ordered in March, 1915 as part of the Emergency War Programme of ship construction. None was sunk as none yet existed. This longhand note of ALL’s is therefore something of a mystery. Perhaps some newspaper made a remarkable mistake, or ALL or an informant misread, or perhaps more likely misheard a news report
