8th November 1940

The bombs last night were near the Seven Arches Viaduct, Lexden. Mr. Hedge had several cows killed. Some reports today say only one dead at Bures, a woman of 90, but I believe there were more.

Account of the Assizes in the Essex County Standard tonight. The case of a Home Guard who deliberately shot two men at Pitsea when a German plane was brought down. He was charged with manslaughter only. One of the men was an old fellow, a native of the place, and the other an official of the War Agricultural Committee.

Another alarm at 6.35 tonight.
