Monday 28th October 1940: yellow fog till midday

Rather cold, very dull, yellow fog till midday. Air raids from 6.40 to 7 a.m., from 1.5 to 1.25 p.m., from 2.40 to 3.30 p.m., 4.25 to 5.28 p.m. Fred Spooner brought in a wireless for me to see. Alan also called. Dear Gladys called with a note from Madge. Bough fish for Dink. Night raid at 6.42 p.m. Fairly severe but nothing dropped in immediate district but 20 bombs in rapid fire seemed to be aimed at factories along the Arterial Road - we shall see. All clear at 3.15 a.m. on 29 Tues.
On this day: Italy invades Greece. Hitler and Mussolini meet in Florence.
