4th November 1944: soldier sees his ruined home

4 Sat. Cold, clear day: the sunshine was as bright as could well be for November. To N. Cheam to buy cats meat: Jack Bradley called in afternoon to say good-bye: he is going abroad with the army. He saw his old house No. 72 Chestnut road, now a ruin. Bought things locally also in Wimbledon: saw the Spooner family also Uncle Dick. Jean Child called inviting me again to tea tomorrow. Warning from 7.30 to 8.0 p.m. no incident. Alb & Lily called in afternoon: gave them some wood for Dad to make Anthony a toy.
