27 Jul 1943, W J Carrie's wartime diary
We are all excited over the news - we get only a garbled version but we feel sure Italy has capitulated. Mussolini is out of the way at least. Then some bombers came over H.K. today and the A.A. guns were firing but we don't know what happened yet. Surely it is nearly the end in Europe now and then we can get busy with the Nips. Cheers! B.
