29th December 1940

Spent most of the day down at the mill, sawing and carting wood. Finally brought on heart pains, and stopped.

Down to the flat to tea. There was an alarm, so did not stop for supper.

The night of 29th-30th December 1940 witnessed one of the most destructive air raids of the London Blitz with many historic buildings and churches destroyed by fire. CP
