Up to 47 degs with a maximum sin temperature of 71. Much more spinglike and the almond a forsythias are showing for(?) bloom. Mr. Ward fitted a new yale type lock to front door as a security against petty thieves. To Wimbledon to buy sprats. Untimed warning in morning. Also from 1.24 to 2.10 p.m. Mrs. Bradley and Doris called.  Warning from 6.35 to 6.52 p.m. From 10.34. A very heavy raid, a great many machines taking part. Many coming from the S. to have a look at Raynes Park, turning & going back among a storm of shells: all were fired at which is better. All clear at 5.30 a.m.
.
On this day: the Italian advance into Albania has been halted.


RAF reported 370 enemy aircraft over UK. Raiding widespread but chief target appeared to be Hull. Details lacking owing to telephone damage. See 'War Cabinet' Twitter: http://twitter.com/ukwarcabinet
