9th August 1944: buildings could be heard crashing down

Paul's Scarlet Climber Rose
9 Wed. Rather warm, fine day with quite a lot of sunshine. From 6.20 a.m: one near in E. It fell at Christchurch Road, Collier’s Wood, damaging the church; buildings could be heard crashing down long after the sound of the bomb: also one in SE and one distant in SE: all clear 7.25 a.m. Workmen started putting more boards in living room ceiling but were called suddenly away to repair serious damage to *London Hospital, Whitechapel. Got the groceries also to butchers and bought fish in Wimbledon. To Worcester Park in afternoon and saw serious damage there also at Motspur Park. Put in new stake to Paul’s Scarlet Climber rose.
