10th July 1943: troops invade Sicily
10 Sat. Rather cool for season, dull & cloudy; rain all afternoon. Cycled to Morden in the rain to buy fish for Dinky. In evening thoroughly cleaned and overhauled the three tuning coils of Chas. Staden's wireless set. Allied troops invade Sicily in early hours - little news yet.
