27 March 1945: oranges and lemons...
27 Tues. Mild, dull morning, some gentle sun later. To post office, to take and get accumulators. To Merton to buy fish. To butchers. Got some grapefruit from Joe Wheeler: we have also had oranges and lemons from him recently. Put in another fence post. Maud will stay here over the holiday and Chas. brought a bedstead here and fitted it up. At 12.30 a.m. two loud rockets or one with a double explosion – about four seconds between the bangs. Warning from 2.45 to 2.52 a.m. no incident. Also from 5.20 to 5.30 a.m. two flying bombs in SSE. Loud rocket ENE at 7.19 a.m.
