1st April 1943: Holloway Bros give big sister a 'substantial' pay rise

1 April. Thur. Very mild, very dull, some slight rain, very rough. Rev. Chas Staden called in morning; had not seen him for about eight years. Walked along line with him to see locos. including a Pacific; he is an enthusiastic railwayite. He had not seen any S.R. locos for a long time. Bought brake blocks and fitted to cycle. Aunt Liza called. Ciss announced that Holloway's* had given her a substantial rise.
