Wednesday 25th September 1940

Rather mild, some warm sunshine; chilly wind. Warning from 10.15 to 12.10. Walk in afternoon to Heath Dive and district. A large number of incendiary bombs were dropped here and many fires caused. Eight such bombs fell on the playing fields. The night raid began at 8.23 p,n, Not quite so many machines or bombs as last night, but some heavy explosions coming from Wimbledon direction. Also a fire lighting the sky not far away.
On this day: ...and the next few days, Germans concentrate more attacks on factories. Locations in Bristol, Southampton and Yeovil are among those targeted.
