14th January 1924

Tonight will be the night. We wait until three o’clock before we make the attempt. Over the last few days we have discussed and rejected any number of plans, some more fanciful then other. The one we are left with is perhaps a little basic but may be that is for the best, hopefully there […]

We got back to […]
