3rd May 1944: war triples battery price to 15 shillings & 6d
3 Wed. Quite a lot of sun but its power was spoilt by a chilly north wind; rather rough at times. Got the usual Wed, groceries locally. Thence to Wimbledon to buy a new H.T. battery at Stone's, price 15/6 they were 5/- before the war. Fitted same in wireless set. Cycled to Morden to buy a paper - just for the ride. Planted first sowing of runner beans, Curtis Champion Scarlet. Watered part of the garden it is so dry. Laurence called, he is very intelligent for his age.
