Sunday 3rd November 1940: quite a treat

Rather mild, downpour all day: half-dark. Warnings from 6.35 to 7.5 a.m. Nothing happened 3.25 to 6.30 p.m. Stray raiders, gunfire and distant bombs. The all clear came when the night raid usually begins: quite a treat.
On this day: Fred was right. We now know this was the first night since 7 September when there was no night raid on London. There had been an average of 165 aircraft attacking London for 57 consecutive nights.
