Friday 25th October 1940: prisoner of war

...Heard today that Cousin Len, missing in France since beginning of June is alive in prisoner of war camp in Germany. Thank God! Night raid began at 6.45 p.m. 7 bombs seemed to swish overhead to land on Cottenham Park side of railway. Late in the raid a plane dropped four on Morden, I judge. German plane carrying a screaming device past over about 4 a.m.
