6 October 1918; Sunday

Up about 8 o’clock. The air full of rumours. Went to nonconformist service with Billy Truman and enjoyed it. Stayed round the fire in the afternoon and stewed apples. Walked out with Billy Truman at night and had long talk. Heard that the Central Powers1 had asked for an armistice and the air full of rumours.


  1. The Central Powers consisting of Germany, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria.
