Tues 16 Sept 1941: Harold has "two pips" up

Mild, some sunshine with a little warmth in it: not unpleasant. Some shopping locally thence to Wimbledon where I bought more provisions and a pair of fine rubber soled shoes. I was served by two charming young ladies. Another surprise visit from Harold Conrade in battle dress this time - officers, with two "pips up". He has now got a commission and is a full-blown lieutenant and will be stationed in London and will now live at his Mitcham home.
