26th October 1943: Handel's music from Woolworths

26 Tues. Cold, dismal, foggy, very damp. To Wimbledon along rail path in afternoon; saw loco 484 on siding; good. Met Mrs. Child. Made two engine nacelles for Anthony's aero. Bought Minuet from Handel's Berenice at Woolworth's for 6d.

*You can hear this gracious, graceful minuet here < link - Fred would have bought the sheet music. How often I think as I type his words seventy years later how much he would have appreciated the music - and the technology - which are available to us in 2013. - Tony
