12th-13th March 1946: Russia invades Persia
12 Tues. Very cold to rather mild, dull, gentle wind from the S. All three children made a stay this afternoon and Gwennie is becoming quite boisterous – a sure sign she is getting better.
13 Wed. Very cold, dismal; howling, bitter E wind. Got the groceries locally. To Morden in a raging wind on my bike to buy fish and fish paste. Got a letter from Capt. Marshall who is in Germany. Did a very neat-fingered repair to speech-coil connections of R & A loudspeaker… The international position is very strained and Russia has invaded Persia in some strength.
