Week of 17 June 1929

Monday 17 June
Edwardstone House
Went up to London with Mabel by 10.6 am train from Sudbury. I met Betty at Temple Station at 12.30. We lunched in the Strand. Went to Westminster Bridge to go on a steamer to Greenwich at 1.15 pm - found it was not running! Went to have haircut and at 3 pm went on board the steamer but had to come off after half-hour wait as it could not start! We went on a short trip to Tower Bridge and back, then went to 15 Pelham Crescent for tea with Gran.
Betty went back to Edwardstone by 6.39 pm train. I attended Regimental Dinner at Army and Navy Club. Good dinner and attendance. Slept at 15 Pelham Crescent.
