13th April 1940

Very full market today. Even some old bulls there, which I have not seen for some time. One was extremely fierce.

When I was down at Rose’s tonight we heard a special announcement on the radio that the British Fleet had had a great action at Narvik in Norway, and had sunk a large number of German ships of all kinds.

That would be the second battle of Narvik then. Ten German ships were destroyed or scuttled. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battles_of_Narvik
