14th July 2014: Colliers Wood, Southey Rd & Board Mills hit

14 Fri. From 1.3 a.m. to 5.15 a.m. no incident. From 8.15 to 9.15 a.m. three, some way to the south. From 9.48 a.m. one east and one north-east both fairly near: four fire engines rushed to the rescue; one distant NE, all clear 10.15 a.m. The near one to E mentioned above fell at Colwood Avenue or Road, Colliers Wood: I later saw the damage, also the damaged Merton Board Mills and Southey Road. – very bad.

14 Fri. continued, very mild, cloudy. Got the meat and other provisions in morning; did some house clearing in evening. Also bought fertiliser in afternoon. Warning from 3.30 to 3.50 p.m. one somewhere at Merton. From 6.6 to 6.13 PM. No incident. From 8.56 to 9.2 p.m. no incident.

  2. Thanks for correction, Anon. Unusually, Fred's ink had faded... and tomorrow there's a great big ink blob in his diary! A new pen perhaps? Also, this week for first time, I was helped with the typing, by someone not so familiar with the names.
