17 to 24 July 1942 tomb robbery

Note: 17th to 24th excerpts.

17 Fri. ...rain all day. To take a message to Mrs Child, also took liver for the kitten... Met Archie Adams the Merton cricketer; had a little chat.

18 Sat. ...bought fish in Coombe Lane. Oh, bought birthday card for Alb.

19 Sun. From 48 degs. to 67 in afternoon... Little Connie Freeman came in to amuse herself at the piano like Doreen used to do.

20 Mon. ...Shopping locally: while out herd the double-toned whistle of a Pacific loco, but could not get a view of it. Along the line in evening; saw a good many interesting loco types.

21 Tues. ...Hoed and weeded part of the garden. The new rose Mrs Edward Laxton has a very lovely deep pink bloom on it - shaded with orange - vermilion: a full rose with stiff petals.

22 Wed. Gave Arthur Child my Leopard Moth aeroplane. To Mrs Child as her wireless has stopped - needs a new H.T. battery Took child's necklace to Mrs Wheals who can restore it to its owner. Saw her garden and the rabbits.

23 Thur.  ...cloudy and dull; windy... bought a geranium at Merton. Planted the latter on the Field's grave in place of one which was stolen. Mr Honor called me in; introduced me to his daughter.

24 Fri. ...a fruitless walk to Merton. Cycled to Morden to buy fish in afternoon.
