Thursday 8th May 1941: down in flames

.
Very cool, chilly N.E.wind, dull. Tried to buy something for the cats but failed. Untimed warning in morning. Also from 2.53 to 3.23 p.m. Night raid at 11.55 p.m.. The raid had scare begun when a machine power-dived ar a great rate, the sound ending abruptly as if it was down. Went into the road to find that people saw it come down in flames over the Common way. Many machine took part and I heard four bombs whistle down in Merton direction. Local guns did not fire, little gunfire at all. Distant all clear at 3.30 a.m. on 9th Fri. Local all clear at 4.12 a.m.
