12th October 1943: still have kitten

12 Tues. Cool, dull, hazy, calm. To Morden to do some shopping, also locally. Mrs Veale did not come back to-day, so we still have the kitten. Took some photos and a note to Mrs. Child. Gwen and Laurance brought some meat for Dinky.

On this day: US Fifth Air Force drop 345 tons of bombs on Rabaul, New Guinea, the main Japanese base in the South Pacific. Many defending aircraft shot down and ships damaged. Rabaul was destroyed in 1994 when volcanic ash destroyed 80% of the buildings.
