1 Nov. (Monday) Mild, dull, humid. Cycled to Morden to buy fish. Called to see Cousin Alf who is at home with a bad foot; he is having treatment at Nelson Hospital. As I thought, the German planes last night were new and extremely fast, the Messerschmit 410. However, one was blown up mid-air by an A.A. shell; this was the noise I took to be a bomb.
