28th June 1940
There were more planes over tonight, but no siren was blown, and I hear that it is not intended that the siren shall be sounded unless it is obvious that a direct attack is being made on Colchester, by a number of planes. Single planes or odd planes flying singly, will be ignored. The decision is causing a certain amount of anxiety in the town. After all it only takes one bomb to kill you. Beautiful weather.
