21st Feb 1945: What was this 'handsome four-engined bi-plane'?
21 Wed. Sharp white morning frost, rather cool to-day but some soft sunshine. Got the groceries as is usual on Wed. also to the butchers. Rocket at 11.22 a.m. To Smaldons to buy two eleven foot lengths of Arris or Harris rail to repair the fence: price 7/4. Put them up and nailed a dozen palings to them – a lot more is wanted yet. Little Dennis was very interested in the job and is unusually intelligent for a two-year-old. Painters did some work on interior woodwork. Saw a handsome four-engined bi-plane. Enormous air activity by our heavy bombers at night.
