Series 02: Anne Donnell diary, 29 December 1917 - 31 January 1919 - Page 186
July 16 Tuesday
My afternoon off. Went into London again to see the Army & Naval war pictures - which are very fine – though twas very stifling & close in the rooms. Not a breath of air. A beautiful band was playing.
Afterwards went to see this years exhibits at the Royal Academy – then rushed to Paddington to get the 6.25 train & missed it but met Lieut L.C. Campbell - then we all had dinner at the Station – and met with rudeness from one of the waitresses. How dare these E. girls – we all said how we hated asking for anything in England Some try to completely squash one but Australians never never will be squashed.
