16 Nov 1942, Barbara Anslow's diary
Mabel's pulse up so Dr. wouldn't let her out this evening.
News that Churchill had church bells rung in England because of victory in Egypt.
Mrs Drown played tonight, started with the 'V' sign, then church chimes because of victory.
I received a parcel! From 'Informal Welfare' - 1 tin pineapple, 1 tin paste, 1 tin of ginger, 1 tin beans. ((I've no idea what the 'informal welfare' was))
Sad to hear that Shamshuipo haven't received any Red Cross parcels yet.
