Tuesday 17 June 1919
" As it is my turn to sweep-up the Messenger's dept. this week I did this and then Miss Goold came in and wanted me to go down the road to Wethey's for her but as Wethey's was not open I went to Calver's and got her 2 1/4 lb of custard creams and a tin of nestle's milk. She gave me 3d.
I made out a memo form for Mr Polan to enter for my 50 yards test so when I came back from my 2.30 journey Hunt gave me an entrance form to attend Island Baths* on Tuesday 24th June.
Weather: Hot and close. No clouds. Sunshine. Warm and brilliant."
*The Island baths were opened at Glengall Street (Now Tiller Road) at Millwall in 1900. They were never hugely popular for swimming, but provided laundry and private bath facilities.
