2nd November 1943: our night fighters were too late
2 Tues. Mild, slight showers; hazy clouds. Cycled to Morden for Dinky's meat. Fitted pair of engine nacelles to Anthony's aeroplane. Posted two letters. Warning at 7.10 p.m. Not more than six raiders came from S.E. Some went towards London others to westward, returning later. Only slight gunfire; local guns fired only one shot. Two of our own night fighters came later - too late. All clear at 8.40 p.m.
