11th June 1943: red fire at night

11 Fri. Warm, fine sunny day but overhead haze. Did all shopping in morning including going to Merton Food Office at Morden to get new ration book and identity cards. Cycled to Tolworth in afternoon and stayed till evening; played with Anthony. Alb gave me some marrow plants which I planted as soon as I got home. A great red glare in the sky just before midnight as of a large fire lit up the landscape but it quickly died down.
