At work as usual. Very busy all day. Worked until about 7.40 at night. Charlie met me and we walked round the town. Met Dora’s Charlie and talked to him. Played a bit. Saw Wearside Artillery marched into the town. Saw some cavalry too. The King visited Newcastle1.

  1. Newcastle-upon-Tyne, some 15 miles north-west of Sunderland and about 10 miles inland, on the north bank of the river Tyne.
