1st July 1943: dry days

1 July Thursday. Warm, fine sunny afternoon. To Morden to buy fish. Wrote letter to Chas. Staden. Aunt Liza and little Laurance called. Garden is getting dry; had to water it.

On this day: at the end of the financial year in the USA, 93 per cent of the government's expenditure had been on the war. In the far east, amphibious landings are being made on Japanese held islands, in Operation Cartwheel. Over 1,000 heavy US bombers are now operating from British bases.
