Mon 16 Feb 1942: new balloon attracts kids

Hard frost, yielding only where the sun shone midday; cutting east wind. The new balloon up again. Went to investigate and found it was let up from a hand-winch on wheels standing on the footway right at this end of Martin Way much to the excited delight of a large crowd of children including John and Peter Child. Thence to Wimbledon with Chas Thomson for company; he wanted to order the sweep from Hatfields Crescent. Met Mrs.Conrade who told me Rose was very unwell & seeing a specialist tomorrow.
