Diary entry April 6th 1936

*According to Wikipedia: Radio Malt was an early to mid-20th century brand of malt extract preparation that followed the Minadex trend.[1] Produced by British Drug Houses, it contained vitamin A, aneurine hydrochloride, riboflavin, and calciferol.[2] The contents were sickly sweet, with a consistency between molasses and treacle.
