31 July 1944: bombed cats and collars

Cannizaro House and Park
31 Mon. Very mild, cloudy. Bought a few things at grocers also fitted a new handle to the vacuum washer. Put the lavatory door on temporarily. Warning from 3.0 to 3.35 p.m. One bomb, which I saw, fell in grounds of “Cannizaro”, Wimbledon Common very near to office where Ciss works. Went up there and found her office undamaged. Bought collars in Wimbledon. From 6.15 to 6.30 p.m. one bomb to NW. Mrs Conrade brought letter from Harold. Cleared the fallen fences from the garden. Workmen started repairs to front door. Found and returned Mrs Conley’s cat; wish I could find Dinky. From 11.30 p.m. 1 bomb in SE, all clear 6.30 a.m. on 1 Aug Tues.
