Saturday 19th April 1941: shoot 'em up & no mistake

Cool, stiff breeze, some watery sun. To Wimbledon to buy some cats' meat also some "Wonder" summer bean seeds. Thought I saw a new 4-8-0 goods tender loco. The track was damaged in last Wednesday's raid & Wimbledon has become the terminus for steam trains: saw some fine engines. The crashed German plane or rather the remnants of it are in the front garden of the house in Denmark Avenue. Night raid at 9.18 p.m. A severe raid but not so bad as Wed last. Our guns did shoot 'em up this time and no mistake. Many fire bombs and some explosive not far away. All clear at 4.45 a.m. on 20 Sun.
