Saturday 30th January 1915

Beautiful morning, sky downy white and pale blue. Battalion Route march under Major Clough down Wyming Brook Rd, Moors, Wyming Brook Rd. Warm, little snow still on ground, no coats. Washed up, Townsend obliged, and Copplestone. Potatoes and ran 1.30 for bus. Hillsborough 2.50pm, saw Wednes beat Wolves 2-0. Good game, class tells. 25,000 present. About 30,000 at Bramall Lane. Robertson and Glennon scored beautiful goals 1st half. McLean absent. Saw J. Price. Home. Enjoyed little music, chat with Pater and Mater. On Wkend pass, went to Lyceum with Tom 7.30-10.30, to see Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie. Children’s piece, delicious, 1st rate piece of work. Peter Pan and Wennie[sic] and 2 brothers flew wonderfully thro’ air. Germans would have enjoyed it. The Pirates bold were just like children conceive them. Childhood is sweeter than manhood. They play at soldiers, we murder. 8th week at Redmires completed.
