11th July 1948: Franz visits for 3 months


11 Sun. Mild, very dull all day; some slight drizzly showers. Gwennie, Laurie & Donald called in morning. They called again before Sunday School, also many other children. Just at the same time Mrs. Alderton with her nephew Franz, a boy of 11 who has just come for a 3 months stay here from his native town Vienna called. So all the children saw him. He broke his arm a fortnight ago so it is still in splints. He is a good-looking boy but delicate. He has come here to be built up as the children in former enemy countries are half starved. He cannot speak English but he will go to school here. I showed him my aeroplanes.
