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 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.
