July 12 Friday
Francis' day – My day off. So at last went to see Mrs Bale at Streatham Hill. French & the Allies flags all in evidence all over London but Australia is much in the boom. Almost every 3rd person you meet wears the rising sun in some shape or form.
London always gives me a headache – it is most bewildering after quiet Harefield. And where ever you go there is hustle & bustle. In the buses trains taxies – tubes.
