Sunday 8th December 1940: bombers do as they like

Very cold - hard morning frost, dull day.Not much like Sunday. Alb & Lily to tea. Night raid began by a German bomber coming over before dark - unmolested, they do as they like. Warning at 5.30 p.m. Constant drone of engines till 4 o'clock the next morning but very few bombs dropped. The planes hung about for 1/2 hour at a time while the anti-aircraft gunners went to sleep or so it seems. All clear at 7.10 a.m. on 9 Mon.
