Weather still cool and unsettled. Phyllis went out to a party in the afternoon and I looked after Alice and Barnaby, both as good as gold. Bet turned up soon after tea. The children had been enchanted with everything including the film of Henry V.
A fine firework display in the camp [?]. I could see some of it from a front window. The first I had seen of course since the war.
