21 Mar 1945: bomb on munitions work

21 Wed. Rather mild day after a morning frost; lovely sunshine all day. Very loud rocket with double explosion at 9.36 a.m. it fell on a munitions works on western outskirts of London with great damage and loss of life. Saw the column of smoke in NNW. Loud rocket at 11.35 a.m. Loud rocket with double explosion at 2.44 p.m. the column of smoke rose in the same place as that from the one at 9.36 a.m. but further off. Repaired another section of the fence. Got the groceries and other articles locally. A pleasant talk with Addie in the garden: she brought me a cup of tea and some biscuits.
