Wednesday 15th January 1941:maze of exhaust trails

Wintry weather to-day. One inch of snow followed by one inch at night, half-dark: bitter wind. Out only to feed Fluffy 3 times and to get carpet rescued from the ruins of Mrs. Child's house. Mr Ward & his boy assistant started stripping the paper off the walls of upstarirs rooms. Warning from 1.55 (?) to 2.15 p.m. Gunfire at 11.45 p.m. followed by warning at 11.50 p.m. Brilliant moonlight night: the sky was a maze of exhaust trails left by the planes: all clear at 2.2. a.m.
