7th Oct 1944: a young widow

7 Sat. Very cool, dismal, misty. To N. Cheam meat shop; was served – well. Mr. Hockney called on his way to Maidstone: he told me Mrs. Veale had had a communication from the Admiralty telling her positively that her husband was lost: poor girl she is a young widow. To greengrocers in morning also shopping locally in afternoon. Edie Hopkins came to tea; pleasant to see her again. Warning from 8.6 t0 8.53 p.m. one very distant SE. Alb and Lily called in afternoon, they said a flying bomb had fallen on Derby Road, Tolworth, not very far from them.
