Sun 7th Dec 1941: Pearl Harbor

Very cold, bitter wind after night of deluge: but a sunny day: rain again at night. To Childs to fit up the reconditioned clock in the hall and left it going well. Took a railway book for Arthur.
On this day: Japan attacks US fleet at Pearl Harbor sinking 4 battleships and destroying 188 aircraft.  1,103 men died on the battleship Arizona; 2,334 in the raid all told. 12 other major vessels were damaged. Japan also attacked British territories in the Pacific.
