Monday 3rd June 1940

Black-out tonight from 9p.m. It is probable that this will occur every night whilst the present tension lasts. Good-bye lights! Or perhaps only “Auf Wiedersehen”. The Italian Cabinet meets tomorrow.

Went back to my tent (everything in darkness) and found “Wilbur” Underhill and John Goodwin, sitting on my bed across the doorway, singing. They were singing and humming some of the lovely waltzes that emanate from our enemies lands. Lilting Strauss waltz music... Austria under the Swastika... What a bloody silly world it is!
