6th November 1943: 3rd bombing at Uncle Ben's, Malden

6 Sat. Cool, chilly N. wind, dull. Did shopping locally on foot also to Morden by cycle. Having heard that bombs fell on Malden last night went to see how Uncle Ben was. Found that a bomb had fallen only 20ft away and had damaged his house, this being the third time it has been blasted. All his windows were broken, the side wall knocked about by bomb splinters. Eight bombs fell, including delayed bomb in Duke's Av. but no one was hurt. Another bomb fell at Addiscombe. Len's Doris stayed the night here. Warning at 11.45 p.m. gunfire & a few machines over London. All clear at 12.25 a.m. on Sun 7....
