December 3, 1918
Read the paper in the lounge whilst waiting for V. Hutton to arrive, then we went along to Australia House where we inspected a collection of war trophies etc., none of them being new to me, however. Returned to the hotel and met Ramsay, after which Hutton left for Paddington. Ramsay and I then went to the Gt. Russell for lunch, very fine indeed, it being a first rate hotel. Having nothing special to do we strolled round town, and I booked seats for to-morrow’s matinee at “Going Up” at the Gaiety.
Had afternoon tea at the Elysee at Piccadilly and dinner at Saxim’s, going next to the Coliseum Music Hall where they had a very good show, including some Russian dancers and the Pasquali Brothers who were with me on the Ceramic coming from Australia in 1914. A very good but quiet day. Weather good.
