18th Aug 1945: cats’ meat queue quite short
18 Sat. Very mild, very cloudy all day, fresh E breeze. Cycled to Cheam and found the cats’ meat queue quite short and got some good meat. To local bakers and greengrocers. Got accumulators and a birthday card. To Tolworth in afternoon to tell them that Mr. Rose died at 12.30 a.m. to-day. He was 80 years and 3 days old. He had been unwell for many years but did not show it much. He grieved deeply at the death of Mrs. Rose years ago and it made a difference to him. Now by God’s Grace they are together again. May they rest in peace.
