Wednesday 22nd January 1941:birds sung; no bombs

Temperature up to 47 degrees: rain nearly all day but a little warm sunshine to end the day, and it made the birds to sing! Walk round the roads of Cottenham Park. Re-wound the primary coil of broadcast receiver - made a good job of it: the spacers had dropped out and the wires were loose. Needed doing months ago.
On this day: British and Australian troops took Tobruk, capturing 25,000 Italians, and 87 tanks. Approaching 400, mainly Australian, casualties.
