28th October 1940
Shelters are begining to be excavated on the lawn in front of the Hospital. Raid alarm at a quarter to three, and another at 5 o’clock. A lot of planes came over the first time. Saw Grubb in the town, and had a cup of tea with her. This evening cycled to Dedham, and spent the night at Sissons. Another alarm at a quarter to 9. The night thick and cloudy. Sisson was very gloomy, and had been to London this week. The damage is colossal.
