Re diary. (Off-topic) I found interesting the writer's use of slang expressions "A1" and "OK" (to describe food and beverages). Staple diet seemed to have been "mealies". (A 2xgt. uncle served in Boer War.)
The first article in the journal was about the "New Europe", written 7 years after founding of E.E.C. or Common Market.

Not relevant to the question of his occupation but this newspaper item may be of interest.

Wrexham Advertiser of 7 Feb 1885
BOROUGH MAGISTRATES COURT
Monday Feb 2nd
Charge of Assault on School Teacher
Long article about  parent against Miss Annie GRAINGER, infant mistress at the Tenter’s National School
A witness - “Rupert SNAPE, a sharp little fellow, who said he was “thickth” years old, described, with naive simplicity, the “caning” administered to the boy Ledsham, and said, in reply to Mr ACTON, that if he (witness) had received the same himself he :”wouldn’t have cried” - he’d “have done nothin’.” (Laughter.)”
