9th Sept 1943: music & exams

9 Thur. Very mild, very cloudy, rough east wind; rain at night. Shopping in morning. Bought cycle lamp battery. Margery Costella called. Mrs. Child & Jenefer called to tell me her niece Peggy has got her L.R.A.M.* for oboe playing and her daughter Jean has passed her matriculation** exam. Gwen & Laurance called.

*Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music. A professional qualification, at that time either for performing or for teaching.

**The entrance exam for universities.
