1st Jan 1943: lady gas collector calls...
Fred notes planting, pinboard scores and cyclometer mileage
1 New Year's Day, Fri. Rather cold becoming milder; dismal, rain all day, very boisterous. Did shopping locally in morning and did not have to go further for which I was glad, the weather being what it is. Started making an experimental aluminium reflector. The only callers were Miss Dickson to do the usual cleaning and the lady gas collector.
