Tuesday 10th Sept 1940: "...the red glow of many fires."

10th Tues. (con.) Mild, cloudy. Warning from 12.5 to From 4.5 to 4.20, from 5.25 to 5.44, from 5.57 to 6.25 p.m. Was out cycling when the sirens went so took shelter at Uncle Ben's, New Malden. Warning from 8.15 to 4.45 a.m on 11th Wed. The nightly bombardment of London continues and the sky is lit up again with the red glow of many fires. The bombs - by the sound, were of the heaviest calibre. These fell at Tooting, I have just heard.
On this day: Hitler suspends decision on an imminent invasion.
