1st December 1943: one model aircraft & two enemy.

1 Dec: Wed. Cold, dull, damp. Did shopping in morning. Met Winifred Ewing. The first time she has been out since her return from a long time in hospital; pleased to see her but she is not yet well. Made two engine nacelles for Anthony's aero. Warning at eight p.m. Local system did not sound and a machine from the south got here before the warning was sounded. It received a fair amount of gunfire from distant batteries. A second machine came from the north and circled round for ten minutes then went east over London, was fired at by distant guns only; heard nothing come down. All clear at 8.45 p.m. Len called in evening. He is going into hospital tomorrow to have his knee put right. Doris stayed the night.
