Thursday 5th December 1940: barrage balloons

Cold, dull, damp, windy. Man cementing in the loosened window frames. To post-office to cash postal-order. Barrage balloon up on fields. There seems to be eight guns now. Night raid at 6.32 p.m. Only two raiders approached but both wdre turned back by heavy salvoes: all clear at 10.7 p.m. Further warning at 10.59. Gun flashes over East London: all clear at 11.58 p.m.

'Barrage balloon up on fields...'
