Sunday 27th October 1940: 7 bombs... slight fire

Rather cold, dull, less wind. Warnings from 7.55 to 10.6 a.m., 11.35 to 12.20 p.m. guns and bombs, 12.30 to 1.0 p.m., 1.45 to 2.20 p.m., 4.44 to 5.15 p.m., Night raid began at 6.48 p.m. Most raiders seemed to come here and seven bombs swished down but only two seemed to explode and they were not severe. Heard fire-engine at work so went to investigate. Slight fire apparently at Merton Mansions, lot of water about. Bombers came at very infrequent intervals to-night. All clear at 6.25 on 28 Mon.
On this day: Italy tells Germany that it will invade Greece. And de Gaulle formally declares the Free French Government.
