in London Stock Exchange - 11 November, 1918

from Diary of Georgina Lee, 12 Nov. 1918, page 277:

London is all beflagged. The streets are calmer today, but there are still plenty of signs of rejoicing. The Heads told us last night that the finest experience they had lived through was the singing of God Save the King at the Stock Exchange. Mr Head 'phoned his wife to come at once and join him as soon as he got down there in the morning.
