28 Feb 1945, Barbara Anslow's diary
Went to Mr Ryan's funeral with Mum, only about 2 dozen there.
Meeting in afternoon, washed hair.
Blasting still going on.
Japs fussing re issues of dry rice. ((You could have some of your rice ration uncooked - to do yourself - instead of having all your ration cooked; many people then ground the dry rice on the grinders and made little cakes etc. with it for a change of meals.))
German lesson in afternoon, only Mr Cautherley and me.
