16th February 1945: Spooner's broken nose
16 Fri. Cold, very dull, calm. To the butchers, cold meat shop, bakers and to pay for the papers and to buy sweets: got accumulators. In afternoon to Morden thence to Merton to buy fish. Met Alan Spooner just out of hospital; he broke his nose playing rugby last Sat. It seems the rocket at 5.0 p.m. on Wed. exploded in the air: many people saw it – Mrs Spooner did. Addie came in twice, the second time to ask Ciss how to use the rug making needle she has bought: did some work to the rug here.
