Tuesday 3rd September 1940: bomb near United Dairies

3 Tues, Continued. Rather warm, fine, some nice sun. One year of war to-day. Air raid warnings from 10.25 to 11.35 a.m. and from 2.50 to 4.0 p.m. Only our own fighter aircraft were in evidence. The five loud bombs heard in the early hours were at Morden. One heavy bomb made a 40ft crater near the United Dairies in Kenley Rd, Merton Park. Had to water Dear Mother's grave, the ground is so dry.Uncle Ben called. Warning from 11.35 to 11.50. A German bomber passed from N. to E. London, judging by the searchlights.
