29th Dec 1942: fire duties skipped

Bitterly cold, driving N. wind; clear, some weak sunshine. Shopping locally in afternoon along rail path a little way to see the Pacific loco: they appear to be very energetic engines. Learned by looking at Firewatching Rota I was on duty from Sunday evening to Monday morning but did not know it as I was told my duties would not begin until the new year.However, there are no warnings now so no-one goes on duty, so no-one will know I did not stay up so as to be ready. I was paired with Mr. Conley* opposite.
