1916 – July 16

When I left Westward Ho, 33 years ago, the motto of the School was “Fear God and Honour the King”. To-day I am honoured by God and by the King. In the morning at parade service, I was admitted as a Diocesan Lay Reader – a trying ceremony in front of the whole congregation, and a heavy and fearful responsibility from which I shrink, but which God will give me strength to bear.
