19 Fri. Bitterly cold, dull; not much wind fortunately. Did usual shopping; got the meat etc. Walked along rail path* to Wimbledon. Harry Morris called to see if I would look at Mrs Kingham's wireless set. Could not do anything on the spot but indicated what they could do and promised to call again.
