1 J.T. McNICOL 1939 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF AN ENGLISH SCHOOLBOY - SCOUT, INTERPRETER, CYCLIST, HANDYMAN, ENTERTAINER, MISSIONARY, PLUMBER, ARTIST, AMBULANCE, READER, MUSICIAN, CIVIL DEFENCE AND PUBLIC HEALTH MAN AS THE WAR IN EUROPE HAS BEGUN
ENGLAND 1939 Original Wraps Good 
On offer is a sensational schoolboy's record of a momentous period of history September 11th 1939 through April 10, 1940. Handwritten in a nature study record book our young author, J. T. McNicol, begins his diary relating his strengths and accomplishments to date: interpreter, cyclist, handyman, cook, camper, National Service in Civil Defence, entertainer, musician, missioner, plumber, ambulance, artist, reader and Public Health man. Each day si a detailed record of Mr. McNicol's daily doings from home, school and extra curricular activities. This is fascinating diary given it begins in almost lock-step with the war and we see from the young man's writings how life changes during the war from blacking out the windows of the house, listening to the radio for news and of course personal comments such as "Dad makes himself generally objectionable". Mr. McNicol is an avid musician and he shows a marked interest in the music of Beethoven. Many pieces of ephemera litter the book mostly relating to music and concerts. Super look at home-front England as the conflict has begun. VG.
