Sunday 7th December 1941

Don came over in afternoon. Hilda Don & I went to the Gaumont. Dad met us as it was snowing & a thunderbolt had dropped quite near.

In other news...

On the same day Japan also invaded Thailand and British Malaya, and launched aerial attacks on Hong Kong, Singapore, The Philippines and Shanghai.
