Saturday 28th December 1940: I went the whole hog

Raw cold. Very dull. Did some shopping in Raynes Park including buying a galvanised wire clothes line. Thence to Wimbledon and bought fish for cats. But I went the whole hog and bought a Magnavox moving coil loud-speaker unit at Stones to fit into the radio-gram in place of the Blue Spot balanced armature unit which is now obsolete although in perfect working order. Have not yet tried the new unit in the cabinet but it promises to be even better than my R&A unit on test out of the cabinet. I think it will be money well spent. No raid before midnight; and so to bed.

On this day: Japan to try charcoal as alternative to petrol in cars to conserve supplies.
