11.5.42

Another gas warning (in Churchill’s speech) last night. I suppose we shall be using it before many weeks are over.

From a Japanese broadcast; “In order to do justice to the patriotic spirit of the Koreans, the Japanese Government have decided to introduce compulsory military service in Korea”.

Rumoured date for the German invasion of Britain: May 25th.
