"3 yrs ago today.
FLAKKER. KILLED at Kohima.
Went to Winnie's. Wet all day."
Dad met Flakker Hart at Newcastle Central Station when he was first called up and they went through the War together as firm friends, but in 1944 Flakker was killed at the Battle of Kohima in Burma. There is a circle round the "4" in the diary and shading round that.
Winnie was his sister Winifred who lived in Wallsend.
