31st October 1943: the PoW returns; new German planes
31 Sun. Mild, dull, slight showers. Cousin Len came home this afternoon after having been a Prisoner of War in Germany. I went to see him in evening and to have a chat; his sweetheart Doris was there. Gwennie, Laurance came to tea also Mrs. Akroyd. Warning at 10.20 p.m. The Germans appeared to be using machines of a new type, terrifically fast - about 1/2 doz. of them hurtling about. Very little gunfire. One machine coming from the south, straight for us, dropped a bomb a little way to the south: local guns were silent. All clear at 11.5 p.m.
