An entry in Noel Coward's diary [Ed. Graham Payn and Sheridan Morley, "The Noel Coward Diaries" 1982 p520] dated Thursday 20th December, tells us that he "became sixty-three on Sunday [16th - the date engraved on the side] and Gladys [Calthrop] gave a party - quite fun, but no party is one hundred per cent enjoyable if you neither drink nor smoke. However, I rose above it. It was a cheefully mixed bag. This perfume atomiser was presumably a birthday present.
