Working in garden in morning. I left in car and drove to Ipswich arriving at Look and Stagg's garage at 1.30 pm when I was met by Leslie Fryer. I left car and went on with Leslie to Woodbridge where we were present at 2.15 pm at the funeral service for Gerald Porter who died on 30th October at Haughate? Bredfield? near Woodbridge. Service was in St Mary's Church. The internment took place later at Bradfield? We did not attend but went on to the old church. and saw my parents' graves. On our return to Look and Stagg's garage I found that the mechanics had found a problem. I had to leave the car and Leslie drove me home and stayed to tea.

Mr and Mrs Angus Powell had come in the afternoon and stayed for tea.
