Witley, April 28, 1917

Saturday         This morning broke clear & warm & continued all day rec’ 1 letter from J [Janie] & 1 from [brother] Ted In the eve I went to town

39 Godalming crop
Town was Godalming, probably, where entertainment beyond whist drives was to be had. Archie Wills went there two days ago to “get a square meal,” since “Rations are getting very short now. Nothing but little bits of nothing.”(1)

In this photograph from Percy’s small album, Godalming doesn’t look very lively. The two soldiers in the centre of the picture are the only sign of life.  It can’t have been taken on Saturday night.
