Virginia Woolf in Richmond - 1 January, 1915

from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.1, 1915-1919, page 4:

Half way home we heard 'British warship...British warship' & found that the Formidable has been sunk in the channel. We were kept awake last night by New Year Bells. At first I thought they were ringing for a victory.
