29 July 1943: searchlights on own ten planes
29 Thur. Very warm, a fair amount of sunshine, quite powerful at times.Warning at 12.25 a.m. Ten great concentrations of searchlights with a plane lit up in the apex of each, but they were our planes. There was however some very distant gunfire; all clear at 1.5 a.m. To Wimbledon in morning to get my new brown suit from Rego; also other shopping. Cycle ride in afternoon; the wheat is now quite ripe and an excellent crop. Finished repairs to sofa. Tested Chas. Staden's valves and wrote him a report.
