Post-diary

Peggy’s 1936 diary has now finished. There is one last entry on the final page, saying ‘Coronation of George VI May 12th 1937’ (Edward VIII has been scrawled out) – which is covered by lines crossing out the days in January – presumably because she started a new Diary for 1937. Peggy made various notes in the back sections of the book, which I will share over the coming days. Unfortunately we didn’t find any other diaries among Peggy’s possessions after she died in 2016, so I don’t have the next one to continue with. There are more entries in her ‘Switzerland’ journal, which I will post (I got a bit behind with them, but I will catch up, and they continue sporadically until April 1937), and there are several sketches she made, including some of David (of course!) and the school in Geneva.
