3rd June 1945: factory fire in Morden; timid little church

3 Sun. Very mild to rather warm, some sunny periods, cloudy and showers and a rainbow just before sunset. Two fire engines rang their way along Bushey Rd. in afternoon. Looked out and saw a great column of smoke rising up in SW. Later went to see what had happened. A factory was completely burned out in Genin*** Rd. Lower Morden. To Sunday School Anniversary Service in evening – rather depressing: Cottenham Park is a timid little affair to what it was in Mr. Bond’s day.

**Not clear in Fred's handwriting. Can any reader help?
