Part 10 (tape 5 side B): DB became more confident once joined Warburgs, became succesful, got pay rise within three months of joining. Moved to Tunbridge Wells to larger house in 1971; keen on sport; wife happy to move; social life in Tunbridge Wells. Wife hasn't changed since marriage; stable person, good counter-balance to DB. DB kept work life separate from family life. Wife got a part-time job at a hospital once children went to school. DB doesn't particularly like travelling, would prefer to holiday in Britain but takes family abroad. Would wine and ine team working for him at Warburgs; began quarterly dinners to assess department's performance. Qualities of Peter Spira and David Scholey.
