Mon 17th Nov 1941: 5d ID card case, bomb dreams
Mild for season - 52 degrees. Very humid and dull, rain, clearing up at night. To Wimbledon to do shopping. Bought fine transparent Identity Card case for 5d at Woolworths. More work on tail of Williams aero. Last night I dreamed the Souther Railway had fitted all the Lord Nelson Class locomotives with bomb-dropping tenders! .
