Sun 14th Dec 1941: trial air raid warning

Phenominally (sic) mild for time of year - 57 degrees: very dull; rain all day, wind blowing great guns. Aunt Liza called. Air raid warning at 6.23 p.m. lasting about two minutes when the all clear sounded. It was announced on the wireless that the warning was just a test - for practice purposes. The sirens have not sounded for such  long time that I suppose it was thought wise to see if all were in working order.
