Sunday 1st December 1940: Lily Bickerstaff

Warning from 12.20 to 12.50 a.m. one machine. Thick white frost, the pink, lilac and blue shades in morning sky and its effect on the frost was very beautiful. Warnings from 11.0 to 12 noon. From 3.14 to 3.30 p.m. Night warning at 6.58 p.m. About two machines and slight gunfire. All clear at 7.44 p.m. Spent evening in public shelter. The Bickerstaff family go there and Lily has taken my fancy: a very dear girl.Further warning at 9.56. About 3 machines and the local guns fired: all clear at 12.27 a.m. on 2nd Mon.
