Monday 17th February 1941: sprats for pussies

Rather cold, dull, rain. Dear Connie Bradley's birthday. Out only to buy sprats for the pussies. Warning from 2.36 to 3.16 p.m. distant gunfire. Night raid from 7.20 to 11.15 p.m. A great many machines, three went right overhead, Local battery opened fire on many of them. Heard some bombs come down in the home counties, vide wireless report.
On this day: US Senate starts lease-lend debate. Turkey and Bulgaria sign friendship agreement in which  former accepts movement of German troops through latter is not an act of war - this under pressure from Germany.
