Friday 8th November 1940: baling out shelter

Rather cold, a little watery sunshine. Warning from 1.45 to 2.30 p.m.;4.45 to 5.15 p.m. Spent lot of time trying to bale water out of shelter but cannot get rid of the last 6 to 8 inches. Bought Kit-E-Kat & to feed Fluffy. Night raid at 6.20 p.m.. Three parachute flares over London. Not many machines and gunfire slight and very inaccurate. Only 4 bombs: two whistled down. All clear at 3.20 a.m. on 9 Sat.

On this day (8-10th): Greek troops take over 5,000 Italian prisoners, the attacking Italian 3rd Alpini Division having been trapped around Pindus Gorges. .See  Pindus in Wikipedia. (Photo: Bogdan Giuşcă)
