21st Sept 1944: meat shop shut... off to buy shirt & collars
21 Thur. Mild, hazy, some autumnal sunshine in
afternoon. To N. Cheam but the meat-shop was shut, so proceeded to Merton where
I bought some liver for the cats. To Wimbledon to buy a shirt and collars.
Warning from 4.35 to 4.50 a.m: no incident.
