22nd October 1940

This morning an Australian lorry completely demolished the little barber’s shop outside St. Botolph’s Station, by trying to turn into the station yard too quick. Little Freddy Chapman was being shaved at the time, but neither he nor the barber was hurt. The lorry turned onto its side, but the driver calmly stepped out unharmed.

Alarm tonight for 1 and 3/4 hours, and I slept at the Castle.
