25th February 1941

I hear a good deal of damage was done at Harwich. 9 people were killed, 6 of them through standing in the street to watch the attack. Without doubt many people are killed now that raids are made in earnest because they refuse to take shelter at all. Early last year, when there were no raids, everyone scuttled underground each time the sirens blew.

Alarm tonight at 7.30, when it again seemed that Harwich was being bombed. It is curious that one heard no noise, but only saw flashes. It seems very terrible to stand here and watch people being done to death less than 25 miles away. Is this the beginning of an invasion?
