O’Neill came down from the Office of Works today, to see the damage which has been done at Bluebell Grove, where the military authorities have scarped the east side of the rampart ditch in order to incorporate it in a “tank trap”. Their own trench, towards the S., bears slightly to the W., and cuts right through the ancient ditch, a clear but oblique section of which can be seen in the new cutting. O’Neill was rather upset about the whole thing, but I don't think the damage is very serious. It can easily be remedied. Had tea with O’Neill in Head Street.
Benton came in today about the palimpsest from Lt. Horkesley.
Nothing yet found in the Shelters in front of the Hospital.
Alarms from 2.15 to 5 past 3, and 6.30 to 9.45pm, but nothing happened. Only a few distant planes.
