8th June 1943: long lost love revealed...
8 Tues. Rather close and heavy. Overcast drizzle all day. Along line to Wimbledon bought 2 doz. allysum roots at Alexander's. Saw loco Remembrance. Had letter from Rev. Chas Stadden - replied. Took Crimson Glory rose for Len Garrod to see. Did some gardening including another sowing of lettuce. Heard regretfully that Gladys Lusk died six weeks ago; a friend of early days at Cottenham Park. She was contemporary with Dear Mary Preston whose name has never figured in this diary but who is worthy of mention. Mary charmed me as a youth and young man: have not seen her for a great many years but should like to very much.
