Monday 30th September 1940: bullets struck roof

.
Rather cool, very dull. Warnings from 9.30 to 9.55 a.m., 10.0 to 10.55 a.m., 1, p.m. to 2.115 p.m. nig air battle, and 4.15 to 5.58 another air battle overhead; machine gun bullets struck the roof of Towner's house. Night raid from 7.50 p.m., to 5.58 a.m. on Tues 1 Oct. Ciss**, Doris and Aunt Liza came with me to spend night at Botsford Road shelter. Could not hear much of the raid but it was probably a little less severe. Heard one bomb come whistling down, and ending with a bump.
.
**Note: I am surprised how little we hear of Fred's sister, Ciss. And what of his Dad, who should have been living at 66 Chestnut Road still at this time?
