    Not from a war diary, but still made me smile so I thought I'd post this up.

    It's from a report dated 30.11.39 in CAB63/112 detailing intelligence gathered by the British on the trade negotiations between USSR and Germany after the Soviet-German pact of August 1939. It doesn't sound like the German trade delegation were having a great time!
