Father and myself started off to catch the 9.20 and arriving at Victoria found it had been altered to 9.10. Consequently we got down to Oxted somewhat later than expected and only got in 9 holes before lunch. I was somewhat out of practice, but improved after lunch although eventually beaten on the 27 holes by 4 and 3.
We came back by 5.30 and succumbed to a taxi up from Victoria. In the evening I went in to see Mrs Raynor. I forgot to say I watched the end of the little man’s [Mr Raynor] annual fire-work display in his garden. The houses here are a little too old for that sort of thing. I am always glad when it is over.
