30th June 1943: Sunday School's 50th

30 Wed. Rather cool, very cloudy morning but fine sunny after-/

Note: this year's diary is split between two notebooks; the first is full at this point, the last page and inside cover being taken up with an excruciating rhyme called 'Faithful' - wondering 'if Christ had a little black dog'. The next notebook begins with Fred's name and address and then, in his exact words:

30 June continued.
- noon. To Morden to buy lights for Dinky, also shopping locally. Cycled to Mitcham and saw a nice bit of cricket but could stay only a quarter of an hour. Went to the 50th Anniversary of the Sunday School at Cottenham Park. A fine meeting at which a number of old friends were present. Was particularly pleased to meet Mr. Latimer after a great many years. A birthday cake with 50 candles was lit by Mr. Akhurst; it was afterwards cut and distributed to the scholars.
