4th June 1944: the pianist lodger... & Allies enter Rome
4 Sun. Very mild, some sunny periods but mostly cloudy. Very boisterous and raw at night. Only the young children call now. Mrs. Akroyd to tea. To Church in evening; Mr. Townsend preached. Was invited by Alf & Lily to Doris Bridges to see her new piano. A very fine instrument which I played but Mr. Davison her lodger played far better than I could. On fire-duty to-night; no incident. It was announced at midnight that Allied armies had entered Rome; the first of Nazi occupied capitals to be liberated.
