See this post for more information about my Grandmother’s diary.
April 13, 1943 – Tuesday
“Well at last the long wait for news is over. Received telegram that Earl is a prisoner of war in the P.I. Sure a big relief. Telegram was under door when we returned from work at midnight. Was delivered at 5 p.m. Swell day.“
I can’t even begin to imagine the relief and joy that she must have experienced that day!
