Fri 1st Nov 1941: enemy aircraft destroyed

.
Bitterly cold, piercing north wind, heavy clouds. Got the groceries, also Ciss' hat from Eastman's, Coombe Lane. Thence to Wimbledon to buy cats' meat. Saw a former S.E. & (?) loco a four, four, nought tender engine. Distant gunfire at 9.58 p.m. Then a machine came over from north to south with some heavy gunfire and I should say about five bombs Londonwards. Warning at 10.10 p.m. Then another light sounding machine from north to south was heavily fired at and got a few rounds from the local guns: all clear at 11.16 p.m. The wireless has just announced the destruction of three enemy aircraft over this country to-night; so that is good news.
