1st August 1944: after we were bombed...

1 Aug. Tues. Very mild, a little weak sunshine. From 7.0 a.m. three in the S and one about Garth Rd. Lower Morden. All clear 7.30 a.m. Went in ’bus with Ciss to the Council Office, Morden and got some compensation for lost property. Warning from 11.0 to 11.30 a.m. heard seven in the SE. Bought a galvanised bath with money granted us for loss of bath. Did some shopping.

From 2.15 to 2.35 p.m. one bomb in NE, 4 in SE. From 3.30 to 4.10 p.m. Four in E, one in SE. Went with Ciss to view our damaged furniture at the Merton Palais de Dance but it was so packed up it was impossible to get to it. The workmen have roughly repaired our front door and replaced it and filled sitting room window with black card and white linen.
