19th September 1940

Alarms at midnight and at 4am. According to Hull, dozens of incendiary bombs fell on the N. side of the town shortly after 4 o’clock, but if they did, they must have been remarkably ineffective, as I was on the roof at the time and saw nothing of them.

There was another alarm at 8pm, while I was in Watt’s. A good many planes came over and I heard one in the Bromley district diving onto searchlights, which were all instantly extinguished. He went away without dropping any bombs. We could hear heavy gunfire far away. Rain at times, and quite a high wind.
