1.9.45. Lovely fine day & I went to Stanley again. Lamberts once again most kind. Dick & I had tea & cakes with the Queen Mary sisters & later once more with the Matilda sisters. Saw Swan & heaps of others. How lovely the sea looked. A grand day, full of life & friendship. Breakdown on transport back – came to Naval Yard by lorry. How good to talk to the landed marines. Lambert called into town today. Good & we gave him our ideas “Get us out of the military clutches”. Ann Senior said Dr Montgomery was at the Matilda yesterday & said the Japs were systematically stripping the place – even doors etc. All HK Police in town & took over stations tonight – poor devils straight out of Stanley. Saw A.Glanville – is going to Australia now.
