Wednesday 20th November 1940: moved out furniture - no beds - temporary covering on roof

.
Cold, rain cloudy, some little sun. Moved out furniture from upstairs and sent to depository. Great number of callers. Men started to put temporary covering on roof. 10 time bombs went off. Busier day than ever & house very uncomfortable - no beds at all. Night raid at 6.55 p.m. Spent night in public shelter; not a very severe raid here. All clear at 7.25 on... ((Thur. 21)

  2. Thank you - and Seasonal Greetings to you. In 2010 (23 Dec), we're still trapped by snow at foot of farm lane - but warmer in cottage than our roofless Fred I am sure! - Tony.
