Jan. 2, 1943

Caught 10:30 a.m. train at Worthing for Victoria Station, London. At Hove, Betty Bingham from Calgary got on the train and rode to London with me.

Met Timmy (Cameron) at Grosvenor Hotel and we had lunch there. Attended Aldwych Theatre in the afternoon and saw Dianna Wynyard in “Watch on the Rhine”. Had tea at Euston Station and dinner at Trocadero, after which we caught 10:55 a.m. train from Euston to Perth.

Very lucky in getting berths. An hour and a half late arriving in Perth, so decided not to go on to Inverness but to go to Dundee instead. Rode from Perth to Dundee with Brunsky Williams (Bransby Williams?), the actor, the chap who used to play Stooge (Scoorge?) on the radio.

We are at Royal Hotel, have just toured the city in a street car and went across the Firth of Tay to Newport and back. We are going to sleep now until dinner. Nothing to do so went to bed early.
