Scope and content
This ledger, kept by the Head of House, contains the rules and customs of Grant's House and a continuation of the names of Heads of House. There are also details of sporting achievements, the 'House Chronicle' which states what has happened in the House during the last term, and anything which the Heads thought interesting to record. A list of those tanned and what they were punished for, and an account of the Play Supper for each year is also recorded. Towards the end of the ledger are inserts with instructions of what to do in the event of an evacuation and air raid. It is accompanied by a description of the boys being evacuated to Lancing. A continuation of the last entry can be found at the start of the next ledger.
