5th Oct 1944: gliding, whistling bomb
5 Thur. Rather cold, quite a lot of hazy sunshine but its power was very slight. To Morden in morning to buy fish. To Wimbledon along railpath in afternoon; saw Pacific loco “Blue Star”. Warning at 7.57 p.m. one very distant; one came gliding very near making a swishing whistling noise but it glided miles in a SW direction: it was almost out of hearing when it went off. Another flew with engine running in the same direction but further S to explode very distantly: one of them dropped two red parachute flares: all clear at 8.20 p.m.
