Boxing Day 1945: Fred the organ player
26 Wed. Boxing Day. Mild for Christmas; fine bright spring-like day with some warmth in the sun, rain commencing in the evening. Dad, Alb, Lily and Anthony had breakfast here then returned to Tolworth. Dad wanted me to play the organ which he seemed to enjoy. Cousin Maud called: I played two carols on the organ for her. Alan Spooner is on leave and called. He asked me to play the setting known as Iris to the hymn ‘Angels from the Realms of Glory’. He enjoyed it immensely and said “it was terrific”. I played many more carols for him. Ciss went to Tolworth and brought back some of Lily’s Xmas cake, and a leg of chicken with stuffing: it was splendid. All the foodstuffs this Xmas were splendid and most enjoyable. Finished repairing the output transformer and tested it in the radio-gram with good results so far.
