The Diary in January

Pantomimes, colds and beastly weather.

January 1st – 5th

The Pantomime, a visit to Peter Pan and
other excitements in London are finally replaced by a return to
the onerous duties of home.

January 6th – 12th

Winter colds and flu, the Sergeants’ Dance
and other events. Lady Haig helps out at Shirts…

January 13th – 19th

A letter from Portuguese East Africa underlines
the intense cold and darkness of the January weather, which has
turned beastly.

January 20th – 24th

The General and his wife leave Aldershot,
and Wynne is involved with farewell dinners and much ceremony at
the railway station.

January 25th – 31st

More colds, but the weather improves. A
Cafe Chantant is not a success, and there is worrying family news.
