8th Jan 1945: bomb split gas-holder

8 Mon. White frost, bitter cutting wind; dull. Wrote letter to Uncle Tom; to post office in morning. Along line to Wimbledon; bought new rubber tube for my self-filling pen, fish for Dinky and a new 2 volt, super power valve. Tested same in evening but it is not better than my Mullard P.M.202. Paid club in evening. The rocket at 2.15 a.m. yesterday fell in Fairfax Road, Teddington. Only a few slight injuries but it split a gas-holder which took fire. Rocket at 6.25 p.m.
