Thursday 13th March 1941: trains, fish. bombers

Raw cold bitter E. wind but bright sunny periods.; the warmth could be felt in sheltered spots. Along rail path to Wimbledon; saw Atlantic loco also Stroudley of the Engineer class. Bought fish and cats meat. Miss Hilliard called. Night raid at 8.15 p.m. Two middle distance all clear signals one at 10.57 p.m. the other at 12.10 a.m. on 14 Fri. Not a great many machines and most of those passed over at a great height returning from a raid elsewhere: a few shots were fired at them.
On this day: Hitler plans invasion of Soviet Union -  SS to control any captured territory, ensuring atrocities.
