8 May 1942: air-raid warning

8 Fri. Cool, some weak sunshine and a rough, chilly east wind. To butchers, the cold meat (?) shop and to get some cakes in morning. To Merton to buy fish in afternoon. Put up new short curtains in front upstairs bedroom. The following should have been mentioned first. Raid warnings from 1.55 a.m. to 2.45 a.m. nothing occurred; first syrens for a long time.

Note: it is Fred's question mark in brackets, in the original diary.
