Friday, 3rd May 1940

Very mild, fine sunny day but spoilt by boisterous chilly North wind. Mrs Wheals bought some jam. Walked along rail path and back, saw the big tank engine No 518.

Fred's 'Housekeeping Account' for this week in 1940. To feed Dad, Ciss, Fred, and Dinky the cat.


Note 6d to have the windows cleaned and 13 shillings for the rent. And the gas was presumably via a meter with several one-shilling entries. And note the farthing!
