22 May 1942: tanks & roses

22 Fri. Mild, cloudy, heavy showers but a few nice sunny intervals. Did all the usual Friday morning shopping. Also along rail path to Wimledon to buy a few things at Woolworth's. Sent Uncle Tom a letter, birthday card & postal order. Saw two large lorries in Coombe Lane each one carrying an army tank with soldiers in the turrets. First roses out on climbing Mme. Edouard Herriot at the front door.
