1st July 1948: Investigating the fire
1 July. Thur. Rather cold, very dismal; nasty cold N wind. To butchers, got my rations – only one book this week as Ciss is away. In afternoon to Malden to see Uncle Ben who has been better for 2 or 3 days. Heard fire engine pass the top of this road in evening, heard them pull up so went to investigate. A large shed at the back of Adams & Butler was ablaze, opposite the Chase Station.: four engines and all the children of the neighbourhood were there. Katie gave me some plums and cherries: she is very good.
