2nd Feb 1943: after the storm

2 Tues. Rather cold; dramatically fitful clouds through which the sun shone occasionally; wind moderating but still rough. To Morden to buy Dinky's meat. Albert called with something he had bought for Ciss.

Bernard Law Montgomery
This month. Winston Churchill speaking in the House of Commons about Viscount Montgomery: This vehement and formidable General - a Cromwellian figure - austere, severe, accomplished, tireless - his life given to the study of war, who has attracted to himself in an extraordinary degree the confidence and devotion of the Army.
