6th Oct 1944: One shilling and threepence grater - and bombs
6 Fri. Very cool, very raw E. wind, but the sun had some warmth in sheltered places. To the butchers, bakers, newsagents, cold meat shop in morning. Bought fish in Wimbledon, thence to Morden where I bought a grater for bread, nutmeg etc: it cost 1/3: this in afternoon. Warning at 8.5 p.m. two flying bombs in S and one in SE, all clear 8.15 p.m. Also from 8.30 to 8.50 p.m. one flew from NE right overhead making a dreadful noise and continued to SW: it kept going on out of hearing.
