24th May 1944: dancing Girl Guides... and forgotten by Ernie
24 Wed. Mild, some half-hearted sunshine through the haze, but not unpleasant. Got the groceries, and much other shopping locally. Thence bought Dinky's fish in Martin Way and a bottle of sauce in Morden. Bought a birthday card for Uncle Tom, wrote a letter to him and posted both. Laurie called in afternoon. To The Sunday School Anniversary in evening. A very successful show. It included demonstrations by scholars of all ages, a dancing display by girl-guides and two comic sketches by the scouts. The Youth Club sang some part songs very well indeed. Ernie Kirkman took the chair. Spoke to him and his wife afterward but he could not remember me; he left Cottenham Park so many years ago; he was our first Scout Master.
