26th October 1942

Woke at five.  Lovely moon in a clear, cloudless sky.  Alas, by 6 there were heavy low clouds, with a few faint gleams to the S. and E., where the rising sun showed red.  Caught the 7.30 bus, weather growing darker.  Could not stop myself from continually looking up at the sky.  Heard a girl in the bus say “This is Monday, don't forget, Jerry’s day!”

All morning I expected an alarm, but it did not come until nearly 1 o’clock.  No planes came, and the all-clear soon sounded.  Committee at Birch this afternoon.  

Rain became heavier.  Got wet through tonight.
