Went over to Gt. Horkesley this morning. Came back to the Castle to get my cycle, and just as I arrived the siren blew, at 5 minutes to one. Nobody else turned up. The two men are very slack, but I do not expect Revd Knock on a Sunday. “All Clear” 1.35. Tea at Rose’s. Another alarm at 7 o’clock, lasting till after midnight.
