Friday 1st January 1915

(Land of hope and glory, Mother of the free,
How shall we extol thee, we who are born of thee.
Wider yet and wider shall thy bounds be set,
God who made thee mighty make thee mightier yet).

Attended Watch Night Service at Petre St. Father and Mr Saul delivered addresses. Pater’s subject condensed to “Can any good thing come out of Nazareth”. Wished many happy new years. Hope victorious. All hoped would be no war next new year. Went home. Thought saw lad hiding. Was Eunice disguised. Saw new house Burngreave Rd. Very tired. Bed 12.45am. Got up 11am. Afternoon saw footer match Wednes v Newcastle, 2-1. Muddy ground, players wet through.
Mother came home, met her at G C Station. Percy paid a visit, having returned from Red Cross at Boulogne. Had fine time, looks well, attended lot of wounded. Said didn’t think much of French. Went with him in evening to Cinema to see Cinderella.
