29th to 31st Oct 1942: Higgs had herrings

29 Thurs. Rather cold, half dark, rain or drizzle all day. To Wimbledon along rail path to buy fish; saw Collins. Dinky caught a mouse.

30 Fri. Cold morning, very thick white mist. Then the sun came out and shone with surprising power & drove the mist away & made fences and everything outdoors steam in a way I have never seen before... Shopping locally, then to every fish shop in Raynes Park & Morden to see if I could buy herrings. Bought lights for Dinky in Morden. In afternoon Higgs had got some herrings; also to Merton to get something at the chemists.

31 Sat. Rather cold & dull. Got the groceries. Along rail path to Wimbledon but could not buy what I wanted. Warning from 8.30 to 8.53 p.m., no incident. A daylight raid on Canterbury to-day.
