29 March 1945: caught no fish... tanks across the Rhine
29 Thur. Rather mild, cloudy; showers. Further repairs to the fence. Spent the afternoon cycling to all the fish shops for miles around but caught nothing, but notices say they will be open tomorrow. Saw dear Annie Chapman in Worple Road pushing a pram. Met Mrs. Conrade who told me Eddie’s house at Clapham had been damaged by a rocket; they were out at the time. The news from the Western Battle Front gets better and better. British tanks are pushing ahead 80 miles east of the Rhine!
