4th March 1943: guns don't try very hard?

Anti-aircraft guns (QF 3.7in) in Hyde Park,
 London, during WWII (via Wikipedia)
Very cool, very dull, calm. Warning from 4.30 to 5.40 a.m. A few machines came and some more incenndiaries were dropped in an E. and S.E. direction. I also heard some noises which I could not recognize - might have been bombs. Only slight A.A. fire. I watched a cone of searchlights trying to pick up an enemy bomber and the local guns fired a few salvoes but they were about a minute late in firing and the shells burst about 3 miles to the rear of the plane. I don't think they try very hard.
