May 2nd 1914

I got up at 8 o’clock. We had to rush about + get ready for Scouting. We caught the 9.3. down + then the 9.20 from Victoria. Having arrived at Bury we went by electric train to Holcombe Hill, a distance of 3 miles. They are splendid carriages. We had a stew for dinner to which each boy added his meat, potatoes etc. We spent a lovely day on the moors + we caught a train about 7.15 back. I was told to search the carriage afterwards, + the train started + I went on to the shunting line + then came back again. I got my full money’s worth. The day was 9d small ones, 10d bigger ones.
