19th August 1944: tarpaulin over bombed roof

19 Sat. Very mild, cloudy, rain in afternoon. Warning at 3.12 a.m. One flying bomb roared over from SE to NW to explode at Norbiton: all clear at 6.0 a.m. From 6.45 to 7.5 a.m. no incident. Workmen removed most of the damaged roof and put tarpaulin on. From 2.35 to 2.55 p.m. one very distant in the SE. To Wimbledon to do some shipping also did some locally in afternoon. Cycle ride up Coombe Hill where I saw some bomb damage, returning through Malden; this in evening. Warning from 9.1 to 9.31 p.m. one very distant in SE.
