25th Oct 1943: Cousin Len in prisoner of war exchange

25 Mon. Rather cold, misty, dismal, very damp. Heard that Cousin Len who has been a wounded prisoner in Germany since early June 1940 has arrived at a Northern port in an exchange of prisoners with Germany. He will go to hospital for examination, but thank God he is safe and back in this country again. To Morden and to Merton to buy something. Warning at 7.35 p.m. About two aircraft in S.E. & E. direction; only very slight, distant gunfire; all clear at 8.7 p.m.
