Alarm in the early hours of this morning, and about 1 o’clock a ‘plane came low over the town and dropped four bombs in Lexden Park, just at the back of Councillor Blomfield’s house. Little damage done, and none are hurt. It appears that for some while the authorities did not know where the bombs had fallen, as there were no Wardens on patrol in the district. At first they went down to the Potter’s Field, thinking they were there.
Penelope came to tea with me today, looking very lovely indeed. Miss Blomfield came to Holly Trees this evening, and went through some of Dr Laver’s early MSS.
