Diarist 5226 in Maryport - 11 November, 1941

from Mass Observation Diarist 5226:

Listen on radio at 9.25 to band of Polish Rifle Brigade playing some rousing marches, good folk dances and some waltzes equalling Strauss. Wanted to hear Beethoven's 5th Symphony (for first time) on Home Service but wd not switch the Band off.
