2nd July 1943: making maps

2 Fri. Firewatching: no incident. Warm, fine sunny afternoon; some wind from east - rather unusual to get warm weather from this quarter. Did all the usual shopping including going to Morden and to Wimbledon twice. Cycled to Tolworth in afternoon; played with Anthony who is getting very charming. Mr Foster* showed me some ordnance survey maps and told me a lot how they are made: he is a map maker.

*Note: Mr Foster was one of a succession of many lodgers at 98 Largewood Avenue, Tolworth - at Fred's brother's and sister in law's. Mr Foster worked for the Ordnace Survey, then based in Chessington, Surrey, later to move to Southampton.
