Friday 20th December 1940:lit gas during day...

Bitterly cold, windy, dismal. Had to light the gas during the day. Mrs Pontifex and Mary called. Bought grape fruit and cat food in evening. Finished the construction of 24 ins fuselage except covering and doping. Night raid began at 5.58 p.m. A few machines paid their usual visit to Raynes Park but turned back again. More activity over London and somewhere well south of here. All clear at 3.15 a.m. on 21 Sat.
