8th Sept 1943: Italy surrenders. Victory much closer.
8 Wed. Between very mild and rather warm; some periods of pleasant sunshine. Did shopping locally, also to Morden to buy fish. It is announced that Italy surrendered unconditionally last Friday. The news was withheld as there are German troops in Italy; the Italians will now help us to drive them out. This is great news and it brings victory much nearer. Light adjustment to dial of Mrs. Child's wireless. Met Aunt Liza and Gwennie with Barbara, Cousin Cyril's wife.
