"machine-gun fire from above clouds..."
Rather warm, some drizzle, dismal. Sent letter to Shadforth's (?) also posted letter for Dad. Bought liver for Dinkey. Saw Dear Mother's grave. Drew out 3-valve circuit for Alan Spooner. Jean & Audrey called. To chemists for Ciss. Listenened to U.S.A. stations on short-waves. Heard German aero. at night; searchlights could not locate it, heard burst of machine-gun fire from above clouds then sound of a bomb; also a second bomb more distant later.
