Sun 30th Nov 1941: bottle of peppermint

Very cold, dull. So unpleasant out of doors that, having no reason to go out stayed at home. Len Garrod called for some final instruction on the micrometer. Ciss went to Tolworth and Alb sent back a bottle of peppermint for me; very acceptable.

On this day: Malta receives 1,000th air raid of the war. In Britain, past two months had seen 351 fatalities in bombing raids. In Leningrad, besieged by German troops, an estimated 11,000 people starved to death during November.
