Monday 20th January 1936

After some homework – the first this session – I went to the pictures with Gwyn.
Half way through the programme, the National Anthem was played. Rather unusual.
The main film was “Wings of Song” with Grace Moore. A poor story with beautiful singing.

Curtain. The lights on an almost empty house. The manager came onto the stage. “With regret” he read a message received on the wireless that night “The Kings life is drawing peacefully to a close”. “God save the King”. Everyone seemed dazed. Gwyn slowly put on her coat and scarf. Everything was slow. History.

“Grotesque” she said, afterwards. Midnight has just struck.
