2nd January 1944: red & yellow flares
2 Sun. Rather mild for season; dull. Monica, Shirley, Gwennie & Laurance called; showed them how to make a paper box by folding the paper only. Cousin Maud stayed the night. Warning at 11.45 p.m. A machine came from the west, passing overhead and dropped some red & yellow flares over south London where it came under slight gunfire; the searchlights failed to find it. Two other machines were being fired at but much further off; heard sound of two bombs; all clear at 12.23 a.m. on 3 Mon.
