13th Aug 1943: bombers back from Italy

13 Fri. Little more than mild, very dull & depressing; rain later. Miss Dixon came to-day. Did a lot of shopping, morning and afternoon. Bought a leather watch-guard locally, also a tie in Wimbledon and a birthday card, all for Dad. The heavy bombers - ours, we saw last night were on their way to Milan and Turin; they returned between 5.00 and 5.30 a.m.; the sound of their engines woke me up.
