23rd Aug 1945: earned 2s 6d for clock repair
23 Thur. Mild, actually very cool for season but some pleasant sunshine in morning, dull later. To the florists to get the floral spray for Mr. Rose’s funeral; it was a large sheaf of delicate salmon-pink gladiolus. To the interment at Old Merton Churchyard. Uncle Dick sat beside me in the Church and we visited dear Mother’s grave together. Mr. Rose was 80 and so a familiar figure passes on. I spoke to the vicar afterwards: a very kind man. Took John Child’s buzzer back, now repaired. Took Mrs. Jordan’s clock back and Beryl made me take 2/6 for work done; she wanted to give me 5/- but I don’t expect so much. Mr. Lane put in a second evening’s work on the organ.
