22nd November 1943: a walk in the dark

22 Mon. Cold, but less so than of late; dismal, drizzle. To pay the club* in the black-out**. To see Mrs. Kingham's wireless set. L.T. now all right but only 15 volts H.T. instead of 120.

Notes: *a 'slate' club savings account, to withdraw especially at Christmas; ** Fred often puts a hyphen in a word (or uses two) where today we would use a single word - for instance, he writes: to-day.
