Sunday 25th August 1940: lost romance & bombs

.
Sun 25 continued, (wrote Uncle Fred, having recorded the bombing of the early hours under yesterday's entry) between mild and rather warm, dull, calm; not unpleasant. Walk in evening to Holland Gardens, very interested in the display of named dahlias. Just came out of the gardens to meet Harold Holmwood. Also saw Dear Annie Chapman; have not seen her for a long time. She smiled at me and said, "Good evening": the nearest I have been to her for probably 20 years. Air raid warning at 10.45 till 11.30. Heard some bombs Londonwards. Sundry evening aircraft prowling round after all clear had been given.
.
On this day/last night: Warmwell, Dorset, fighter airfield attacked (  http://www.controltowers.co.uk/W-Z/Warmwell.htm ), also Birmingham, amonst other targets. And Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania became part of the Soviet Union.
