13th June 1943: anti-personnel bombs?
13 Whit Sunday. Rather warm, some sunny periods, otherwise cloudy and showers. Madge called also Jean Child and the children. Walk along line in evening returning through Dundonald; peoples' gardens look nice. Warning from 1.5 to 1.20 a.m.; no incident. Also at 2.45 a.m. A few planes to eastward - over London; very slight and a very dispersed gunfire; all clear at 3.10 a.m. About an hour after the all-clear numbers of reports were heard as if the enemy had dropped many small bombs with a short delayed action - known as anti-personnel bombs.
