Friday 15th November 1940: "serious raid for some"

Cold, bright clear, morning frost. The raid last night was on Coventry 373 people killed. Only 3 time bombs hereabouts. Two untimed raids in morning, also from 1.20 to 2.10 p.m. Bought herrings for the two cats. Alan Spooner called. Night warning at 6.12 p.m. Very many machines. Hundreds of fire bombs clattered down; only a few explosive bombs locally. But a serious raid for some people: most raiders went right over to destinations to northward. A fire over London way. All clear at 7.00 a.m. on Sat 16
