24th Dec 1944: German rocket rattles Christmas Eve window
24 Sun. Cold, overhead haze but clear below: freezing hard by early evening. Took a post-card to Pontifex’s at Worcester Park in afternoon: it was addressed to 68 next door where they lived until the bombing in Nov. 1940. They were pleased and made a fuss of me as they always do. Took a truck of bricks and a soft ball – toys for little Dennis next door. Had some ginger wine with Mrs. Hockney and Mrs. Veale; they are nice people too. Rocket which rattled the windows at 7.30 a.m. Mrs. Akroyd called with a present to be taken to Anthony. Saw dear Gladys in Grand Drive and wished her a happy Christmas: she is very nice too.
