19th Aug 1943: a tank driving along road

19 Thur. Warm, but sunshine only moderate & intermittent - very pleasant. Shopping locally in morning. Met Mr. Peartree in Coombe Lane; some years since saw him last. Rode along by-pass to Robin Hood Gate in afternoon. Saw a tank going along the road under its own power. Some surprise visitors. No sooner had Mrs Costella gone than Olive and Hesta Martin called; Hesta lost her husband in the Africa fighting.
