Saturday 21st December 1940: violent gunfire

Hard black frost, bitter wind, dull. To buy cats food. Moved slate rubbish from back garden: shovelled it into road for council's men to cart away. Warning from 3.0 to 3.10 p.m. enemy plane passed over: no firing. Night raid at 5.57 p.m. Several planes went right over and returned: others raided London. Violent burst of gunfire at 3.30 a.m. on the 22nd. All clear at 4.54 on 22 Sun.
