Tuesday 6th July 1915

The wind is still blowing strong from the NE and several showers of rain. Joe Torkington came in the pm and took Ernie home with him. It rained heavier after they went away, while at the village Joe heard that Herbert Fordham was buried at Otahuhu to day as on account of the rough weather and the Kawau missing her trip they were unable to bring the body here to be buried alongside of his parents.
