Some planes and distant gunfire during the thunder storm. All clear at 3.10 a.m. Mild, very dull day, rain. Did the usual shopping. In evening took off bulbs from dear Mother's grave. Bought Merton Parish Magazine with lovely photo. of the Church on the cover to send to Fred Fraine. A little girl whom I did not know passed me in the street , looked up smilingly at me and said "Hullo"; wasn't that lovely of her! Warning from 1.5 to 1.35 p.m.
