Diary sub-note: 1918. Recapture of Lille, Ostend and Douai
S.R. 6.27, S.S. 5.3

Had drawing 1st & 2nd lessons instead of after break. Went to the town & I bought some wool for a jumper. Went to an Operette called “Veronique” [sic] in the evening. It was marvellous. Got back to school at 12. o.clock.

Diary entry October 17th 1936

Diary footnote, accompanying a photograph of an Old English Sheep dog: OLD ENGLISH SHEEP-DOG. The BOBTAIL is perhaps the shaggiest of dogs, as anyone who has ever tried to wash one will agree. There is a legend about his absence of tail, that at one time it was decreed that all shepherds’ dogs should have their tails cut off, to curtail their game-chasing proclivities. A dog minus his tail cannot turn at the gallop. The ‘bobtail’ is very intelligent and surprisingly agile, in spite of his heavy coat.
