Thursday 12th Sept 1940: "Card saying Tolworth was bombed on Monday..."

.
12 Thur. (con.). Mild, chilly wind, cloudy. Bought liver for Dinky. Was watching guns on fields when the warning siren went at 4.40 to 5.45 p.m. Card** from Albert saying Tolworth was bombed on Monday afternoon last. The nightly attack began at 9.15 p.m. Less machines took part, but a big glow in the N.sky showed where they had been. The firing was less intense All clear 15 5.45 a.m. on 13th Fri.
..
**Neither brother had a telephone at this time.
.
On this day
  • Reporters in Berlin were told that by German authorities that the RAF wouldn't last another two weeks.
  • Finland agreed transit rights for German troops.
