13th August 1944. Tea with a homely couple

13 Sun. Rather warm, lovely sunny day. To tea at Pontifexes at Worcester Park; they are very homely, pleasant people who make one feel at home. There is little else to report today. Oh, a warning at 7.52 a.m. two down in SE, two near in SE, one near in S: all clear at 8.15 a.m. From 10.55 pm, two bombs in SE, two in S: all clear 6.0 a.m. on 14 Mon.

On this day: Joseph Kennedy, brother to the later US President, died in a mission launched from the WWII airfield at this nephew's (Tony's) 2014 home village of Dunkeswell in Devon.  Link to airfield museum's Facebook entry
