23rd Jan 1943: armoured railway engine?

23 Sat. Very cool, getting colder; cloudy. Cycled to Wimbledon to buy liver & lights for Dinky at the Hartfield Road shop; have only been there twice. Cycle now runs beautifully. Got the groceries as usual. Along rail path at 5.45 p.m. to see the Q1 heavy loco come up. It seems it is armoured to withstand air-attack. Planted shallots in the garden.
