Very cold, dismal day, but no wind. Alan Spooner called to tell me his mother is laid up with flu and his brother Fred was taken to hospital this morning with severe abdominal pains: an operation may be necessary. Went to see Jimmy Wiltshire's new radio-gram. Fitted new 120 volt high-tension battery to radio gram and played same - fine to have ample H.T. once again! good volume and quality.
