20th November 1943: ONE shot from Raynes Park' guns

20 Sat. Very cold, dismal; thick fog all day. Got the groceries as usual., thence to Morden on foot, bought dried green peas, and fish and some lights for Dinky. Re-fitted slow-motion dial on Mrs. Child's wireless. Warning at 8.17 p.m. Four machines approached from S.E. circled overhead and returned the same way. Only very slight distant gunfire; the third machine had ONE shot at it from the Raynes Park guns; all clear at 9.10 p.m. This said was in a blanket fog. Doris stayed the night.
