27th April 1942

Raid on Bath the main item in all the papers today. How long will this business go on? How can one condemn the Luftwaffe more than the RAF?

Many people in Colchester take a masochistic delight in these raids. I heard some at lunch today saying with gloomy joy “Ah well, I suppose we shall get our packet before long.”

Terribly long meeting at Birch today. Much talk about cows, examination of dairy herds, etc. Old Round was talking in a most bloodthirsty manner at tea, rather as if the war was pheasant shooting. Did not get away until after 7. Saw Joanna incredibly tall and beautiful wearing a long pink dress, printed with flowers, walking along the gallery.
