9th Jan 1947: 25 houses were destroyed
9 Thur. Cold; some lovely sunshine for time of year in morning, dull later. A firm of builders are clearing the bomb sites in this road, pulling down the two derelict houses at the end, seemingly as a prelude to building again the 25 houses destroyed at this end of Chestnut Road. Mrs. Child is hoping to come back again. To Merton to buy lights and fish for the cats, a new 120-volt high-tension battery and some liver – not for cats. Fitted the battery and the loud-speaker quality is marvellous. Made a tapped medium-wave coil for John Child.
