7th Mar 1943: whooping cough, kid's yacht

7 Sun. Rather cold, the clouds are high; not so dull. No children called to-day; many have the whooping cough - Gwennie and Laurance have it; there is an epidemic. In afternoon walked up Arterberry Road and down the Downs. Met Audrey and John Child with two other children going up the Downs, they were going to sail a model yacht on Rushmere.

Note: Arterberry and Lower Downs are long north-south roads between Fred's Chestnut Road home, once he'd crossed the railway, and Wimbledon Common - where Rushmere is a small lake.
