The little notebook that became Mrs Grace Smith’s diary of her time in Stanley Internment Camp was not shiny and new. We might surmise that it had once belonged to a teacher. It appears to show part of their weekly timetable, teaching Forms 3A and 3B.

It is believed that Mrs Smith was completely blind, which poses the unanswered question, “Who wrote it for her?”
