27th August 1944: lovely enjoyable day... not many bombs
Nonsuch Park. (Photo: Roger Miller via Wikipedia)
27 Sun. Rather warm, lovely sunny day: perfect, without
being too hot. Painted cement fillets in shelter to make them rain-proof. Also
painted the non-galvanised bay of shelter to save it from being rusted away.
Enjoyable cycle ride in evening through Worcester Park, Old Maldon, Ewell,
first time I have been along the by-pass to East Ewell, returning along Nonsuch
Park Lane, through Cheam home. Warning at 6.40 a.m. one fairly near in W, three
in SE, two fairly near in E, one in NE, all clear at 7.30 a.m.
