17th July 1940

Heavy rain early today. Went over to Dedham tonight to the Sissons'. There is a lot of talk about invasion, and some people are very frightened. ...

On my way out to Dedham I saw the cottages at Fox Street which were damaged by a bomb on June 28. It is the first pair after passing the “Fox and Hounds”. The bomb fell in the front garden, breaking every window, and cracking the walls badly. By a miracle nobody was hurt, but the houses had to be vacated.

Home at nearly midnight.
