17th Aug 1945: musical evening with friends; no spuds anywhere

17 Fri. Becoming rather warm, some pleasant sunshine in afternoon. To butchers and other local shops, but could not buy potatoes anywhere. Only one fish shop open to-day and that in Wimbledon: bought herrings. Met Jessie Field – Mrs. Hodges. Got the groceries instead of Wed. To Len Garrod’s in evening and had the unusual experience of hearing others play while I listened: Mrs. MacAra was there and played the piano for Len’s cello: Mrs. Hubert Rogers was also present: Hubert was killed at Cassino in Italy.
