3rd November 1942

Heavy rain, and strong N.W. wind, clouds ragged and low.  Did not feel very nervous though, even when the sirens sounded at 5 minutes to 8.  I heard guns to the East, but no bombs.  Cycled slowly in the rain, and heard all-clear about 8.15, then, faintly, another alarm about 8.30am.  There was no alarm at Colchester when I arrived.

Tonight rang Sir Ralph Harwood, but he said the tenement at Southfields was already let.  I would give anything to get a house for the old people out of the town.  My feeling of insecurity has increased since the Canterbury raid. 

Rain eased off a little tonight.
