Thursday 12th December 1940:tedious raiders

Hard frost, dull, thick fog at night. Warnings from 11.10 to 11.20 a.m. From 11.58 a.m. to 12.20 p.m. In afternoon to Wimbledon along rail path to buy high-tension battery. Saw extensive raid damage especially at corner of Stanley Road. Saw many interesting types of locos, including new0-6-0 goods No.545 also a Brighton 4-6-2 tank. Night raid at 6.21 p.m. Not so many raiders but continuing in a tedious and annoying manner. They could not posibly have sen the ground owing to the thick fog: some got shots at them. Main attack was on towns in the north. One unexploded bomb fell near here. All clear at 4.45 on 13 Fri.
