Wednesday 12th March 1941: scullery painted

Raw cold, bitter, boisterous E. wind. Mr Ward painting the scullery. Only went out to feed Fluffy. Living room chimney swept. Night raid at 7.53 p.m. Not so many machines as last night. Some bombers were heavily fired at, some of them returning from northward especially one of which dropped something which swished down but there was no explosion. All clear at 1.15 a.m. on 13 Thur. Further warning from 2.16 to 2.50 a.m.: no incidents.
On this day:

  • Italians in Albania fighting Greeks, trying to push them back into Greece..
  • Churchill says Lease-Lend Act is the new Magna Charta. Roosevelt asks for $7b military credits for Britain under the Act.
