Saturday 21 June 1919
" When I came home from work I called for the Antrams & Abraham and we all went to Greenwich and had a game of cricket. I paid 3d for a small frog & a jar to put it in.
Nana came this evening.
Next week we are going to cut cricket and going to Woodford which is a 1/2d return ride on a bus for about an hour and a quarter. when we were over the Heath we played a game of cricket with Antram's bat. Fred and I against Albert and Abraham. we won. We saw the Royal Sovereign* on the pier.
Weather: Showery and thundery. Cloudy. Sunny intervals."
*The Royal Sovereign was a very popular paddle steamer, running trips regularly from London to Margate and Ramsgate. Built in 1893, she was operated by the Royal Soveriegn Steamship Company from 1918 - 1929 when she was sold to be broken up.
