Wednesday 5th February 1941: went to order doctor...

Hard frost continues, dull, heavy fall of snow at night. Elsie Phillips called. Alan Spooner called to take away a blanket. Chas is in bed with influenza. Went to order doctor for him. Enemy planes about and gunfire at 7.20 p.m. . Warning given at 7.35 p.m. Many planes came and some bombs dropped, two fairly near. All clear at 9.36. Gunfire and heavy bombs at 9.40 p.m. Many bombs about South London I should estimate. All clear at 10.26 p.m.
