16th May 1943: midnight air raid

Salmon-cream Admiration
16 Sun. Rather warm, bright sunshine all day, but spoilt by a chilly wind. Short walk in afternoon, along rail path in evening. Warning from 1.40 to 1.50 p.m. The first rose out in back garden is Admiration, salmon-cream. A loud bang just before midnight followed by the sirens; all clear at 12.19 a.m on 17 Mon.

Note: Fred runs his Sunday entry on into Monday - when he gives details of that German air raid. And tomorrow he also reports the raid by the British forces on German reservoirs that we now know as The Dam Busters.
