31st August 1944: a very superior shop...

31 Thur. Mild, cool wind, some sun but many showers. From 8.30 to 8.40 a.m. no incident. From 8.50 to 9.5 a.m. no incident. From 9.25 to 9.40 a.m. no incident. From 10.0 to 10.15 a.m. no incident. From 10.43 to 11.2 a.m. no incident. From 11.35 to 12.5 p.m. no incident. From 5.5 p.m. to 5.15 p.m. no incident. To North Cheam in morning to buy cats meat at a very superior shop: also to the grocers. To butchers in afternoon. The workmen are making progress with the roof and pulled down the broken parts of a chimney stack and started re-building it.

Note: Fred wouldn't have known quite yet... but the Allies were beginning to approach/capture flying-bomb launching areas... I don't say 'sites', because I believe there was some mobility in launchers? - Tony
