May 8th 1914

I got up fairly early + did my chemistry notes. We had no test. Cyril + I went with a party (in the Upper Circle of the Royal) to see the “Captain Scott in the Antartic” pictures taking by Mr Pouting. The lecturer was Mr Meyers the dog man. The pictures were splendid. About half of them were studies of penguins, seals etc, which were very amusing. Then the hard marches were seen, the erection of the tent + the evening meal. Then off again next morning. Then the last picture was the grave. Then Mr. Meyers recited the well known piece, “We took risks, we know we took them, etc.” Then we went back to school for tea for Normandy trekkers. Then skipped home. The show was not up to much.
