February 3rd 1917

Our attempts to keep the field clear for the boys to pay hockey have failed, but this cold spell of weather provides other opportunities too good to be missed!  Mr Haynes has found about 30 pairs of serviceable skates (rather primeval – but they will do).

We are taking some time off from our lessons to make the best of it whilst the conditions last. I have arranged with the University Skating Club that we use Long Meadow (by the Cherwell opposite Christ Church meadow).

As you can see, the boys were a bit tentative to start off, but they soon got the hang of it. You don’t get anywhere without falling over a few times.

The spills are all part of the fun!
