19th April 1943: grossly inaccurate gunfire

19 Mon. Mild, pleasant sunny morning; cloudy afternoon, some rain. To post office in morning to post a parcel among other errands. To Morden in afternoon. To Mrs. Hippel, replaced power valve with good results. Paid slate club in evening. Warning from 1.0 to 1.20 a.m. One enemy plane approached from the S.E. then returned the same way. It was fired at for a short while but the shell-bursts were very dispersed and grossly inaccurate; it dropped two bombs some miles away; all clear at 1.20 a.m.
