29th November 1944: flying-bomb's blast & woof...
29 Wed. Cold, dull morning but the sun was pleasant in the afternoon. Got the groceries at Eyle’s also sausage meat at Johnson’s. Thence to Shorts’ to buy soda and matches. More work on Mrs. Veales fence, halved a piece of Harris rail in the gap where it was broken and filled in the gap with palings. There is still more to do yet. More wall-paper stripping in sitting room. Man painted the outside of new back window. At 11.55 p.m. a heavy rumbling explosion. I heard the blast wooff and hiss past the shelter – presumably a rocket in SE direction.
