17th July 1948: Rain stopped play
17 Sat. Mild, very dull and overcast, rain setting in in afternoon; no sunshine. Bought fish locally in afternoon also nitrate of potash and superphosphate of lime for the garden. Bought a book of rambles called “Thames-side Surrey” as a birthday present for Alb. To Wimbledon Common to see Holloway Bros second cricket eleven play but rain soon stopped play for the rest of the day.
