22nd May 1943: loud bombs & a cricket match
22 Sat. Between very mild and rather warm, mostly cloudy and overcast, a few spots of rain. Warning from 1.30 to 1.40 a.m.: no incident. Also from 3.0 to 4.0. a.m. Three raiders from N. to S. the first and third each dropped a bomb, the last one very loud, which I have been told fell at Norbury. The second machine was hardly fired at but the local guns fired about a dozen rounds at the third. Got the groceries as usual. Saw Merton beat their opponent 114 to 75. At one time the visitors score was 4 (runs) for 2 (wickets); saw Uncle Dick at the match.
