3rd August 1942

Monday, Bank Holiday
[War Agricultural] Committee today, so drove in from Lawford this morning.  Cycled back this evening.  Some people say Colchester was machine-gunned last night, but I cannot find whether this is true or not.  No sign of damage anyway.

Alwyne Garling's Wartime Colchester Diary entry for today - 3rd August 1942 - confirms that Colchester was machine-gunned during the night.  CP
