4th May 1945: BBC in Hamburg

4 Fri. rather cold, less wind, a little fairer with some hazy sunshine. Got the week-end joint, some cakes etc; paid newsagent and bought some sweets. Gwennie and Laurie called; amused them with paper boats and bellows. Further clearing of sitting room; begins to look more like its old self apart from the broken furniture. The Germans in the N and NW of Europe surrendered to-day. There are still many isolated places and Norway yet to be occupied, but the end may be within a few days. The B.B.C. are** now using the Hamburg radio station.

**Note from Ed: sorry about the terrible grammar. Fred 'are' usually so accurate! Interesting, too, that he has full stops in BBC - Tony
