Thur 8 Jan 1942: Droitwich calling
Severe frost after rain, very slippery, dull. Posted loud-speaker unit to Harold Conrade at Worcester. I mean Droitwich.* To Wimbledon along rail path.
Note: an intriguing reference to Droitwich, site of a major BBC transmitter, as celebrated at its official opening in 1934 by the Radio Times copied here from the detailed history at this BBC engineering website.
