Friday 4th October 1940: repaired shelter floor

Rather mild,dismal, drizzle. Warning from 5.50 to 6.14 a.m., from 12.50 to 5.32 p.m., enemy machines about; our guns fired many rounds. Got a wheelbarrow and collected some brick rubble to repair the floor of the shelter. 6.51 to 6.30 p.m., 6.52 to 1.23 a.m. on 5 Sat.... Not so heavy a raid as earlier ones, but some bombs on South London, also some South from here probably Caterham or thereabouts. Our local battery was in action but no planes past overhead. Further warning at 2.13 a.m. Only distant gunfire and all clear at 3.35 a.m. on 5 Sat...
