Tuesday 28th January 1941: bombs & a mouse

Rather cold, dismal, rain until early evening. Out to shops in Kingston Rd and Coombe Lane. Warnings from 1.00 to 11.25 a.m. distant gunfire. 12.35 to 1.0 p.m. 1.15 to 1.50 p.m. more gunfire 1.55 to 4.5 p.m. Enemy aircraft flying above dense masses of clouds, dropping bombs through them at objects which they could not have seen. Local guns came into action during this morning. Dinky caught a mouse in kitchen cupboard.
