5th July 1945: voted 'National Conservative'
5 Thur. Mild, dull morning, pleasantly warm, sunny afternoon and evening. The General Election. I voted for the National Conservative candidate Hardy-Roberts this morning: I think he will get in* but we shall not know till the 26th. Did some odd jobs about the house including helping Dad to plaster the marble top of my washstand together. To Morden to buy fish. Little Connie Freeman called to give me a posy of rambler roses: how sweet of her.
*Note: Brigadier (later Sir) Geoffrey Paul Hardy-Roberts (ex Eton & Sandhuirst) was the candidate for Wimbledon. The normally safe Conservative seat was won by the Labour Party as they swept to power in an electoral landslide.
