Cynthia’s Diary – January 10 – 11, 1942

Saturday 10th January

Went to Guildford.  Had new coat.  Saw Ivan.  Rather disappointed.  Had cream cakes and tea at buffet.  Went to dance, Daddy treated us.  Went to “3 Horsehoes”.  Good dance.  Naughty Charles danced with me,  jealousy……. Lights went out in waltz.  Danced with Harold etc.  Saw some Satchel Court ((Sachel Court had been a large estate where Cynthia had taken pictures of the wealthy going on hunts with the hounds. It had been taken over by the “Union of Seamen” at some point, during the war. The Sachel Court girls must have been girls that worked there.)) girls.  Did not go to bed till late.  Saw Ally, John L. etc.  Had fun.


Sunday 11th January

Got up early.  Bob did not come.  Phoned.  He said he had been to Aldershot.  But would come about five.  But he didn’t .  Phoned Charles twice.  Also Cliff.  What a laugh.  Mummy, Daddy etc. went to Auntie Pat’s!  Was I disappointed that Bob did not come.  I could have gone to the pictures.
