Tuesday 25th June 1940

Furnishing the air raid shelter
Between very mild and rather warm, getting cooler. Cloudy morning but some feeble sunshine in afternoon. Shortly after midnight heard aircraft high overhead, many searchlights out but all failed to find it. Then the air raid sirens sounded and the alarm lasted three hours before the all-clear signal was heard. We all went into the steel shelter but no raid occurred locally. In afternoon dug the shelter floor deeper and laid down carpets for comforts sake & Dad made seat on either side. Had to water garden.
