Tuesday 31st December 1940: glass jars of Kit-E-Kat
"1941 will doubtless be a difficult year but God is with us I am sure...".
Rather cold, dismal, drizzle. Out to buy food for the cats and was pleased to find a shop where I bought two glass jars of Kit-E-Kat. There was no enemy activity to-night, so the Old Year closes with a quiet night, and the New Year begins; and I went to be undisturbed. 1941 will doubtless be a difficult year but God is with us I am sure and the new year will bring us nearer Victory. .
