28 March 1916; Tuesday

On parade as usual. Field day1 in the morning. It snowed heavily and was terribly windy and we had a rough time. Had a march round by Wharncliffe afterwards. On parade as usual in the afternoon and was very tired at the end of day. Went to Inwoods’ at night and stayed until after 10 o’clock. Sat beside the fire and talked. Mrs Inwood and the other young women were at the pictures and came in late. Mr Inwood came in last of all.

  1. “Field day”, now usually used metaphorically to describe a good day, is used here in its original, literal sense to mean a day spent in field activities.
