10th Dec 1944: flying bombs & searchlights

10 Sun. Severe white frost till midday, then raw dismal day with fine rain. Started painting wainscot of sitting room. Took distemper brush back to Chas. Mrs. Veale brought in a document she wanted signed by the minister. Warning at 6.55 p.m. Two groups of searchlights indicated that two flying bombs were travelling from NE to N. Saw two flashes as the bombs went off and the searchlights then went out. All clear at 7.42 p.m.
