WK (born 1932) grew up in Hampshire. He kept a diary from the age of nine, in which he recorded the daily happenings in his life. Here, he describes his sister’s stay in hospital with appendicitis, and a trip to the cinema.
8 September 1948
P [the diarist’s sister] had her appendix out today. Doctor B came round this evening and told us she was alright.
Dad, Mother and I went for a walk in the afternoon.
Cinema in evening to see a stupid Noël Coward film “Brief Encounter” and film of the new forest – Not very good.
