Painting, and membership cards

TUESDAY. 30th OCTOBER, 1945.

Tonight we should have had a Rover meeting but owing to the work still required to be done in the Den before our official opening, we decided to work instead. I am afraid my ability as a painter is not very high and I spent most of any time cleaning up, after a short spell of painting. Having completed the walls we painted imitation wooden beams in tonight, the effect being quite good, and we also decided that an old-fashioned lantern style of lamp shade would be ideal. Bob and I promised to make them.

Fred came in just before we closed, to inform us that he had ordered some membership cards bearing the name “PIOKELDE”.

    I too have one of these cards that look exactly the same. My grandad, Frank Robinson, served on the HMS Pioneer at the same time. I have lots of photos from his time there.
