26th November 1943: one aircraft; two hours fire duty

26 Fri.Thick white frost lasting till midday; some feeble sunshine. Did the usual Fri. morning shopping locally, also walked to Wimbledon along railway path. Warning at 9.0 p.m. A solitary machine came from the west & cruised about for 25 minutes, everything being quiet. It then made off in a south-east direction where a few shells from distant guns were fired at it; I suppose it was German; all clear at 9.37 p.m. On fire duty from midnight to 2.0 a.m. on 27 Sat.
