8th July 1944: food queue, bombs and a rainbow
8 Sat. Rather warm, some sunny periods. Waited in a long queue at the greengrocers in the morning. To Wimbledon in after noon to buy fish. Short cycle ride in evening. From 9.27pm warning, 3 bombs fairly near over London; one made a red glow in the sky, and 3 distant. Wonderful double rainbow in a red sky during the raid. ....ten more, one quite near but it made only a little noise when it went off. All clear at 5.58am on 9 Sun.
