16th November 1940

Thompson Smith came in this morning, and gave all the coins and pottery [to the Museum] which were found in the shelter in his garden.

Another alarm tonight, from just after 6 until half past twelve. Not so many planes as last night, and they seemed to be flying towards London. For some reason I did not feel so frightened as I did last night.

EJR had witnessed the German planes flying in on their way to attack Coventry the previous night. His description of this event appears in his book.
