4th January 1943
No Committee meeting today, thank goodness. Capt. Folkard rather irritable. Very busy all day, yet nothing seems to be done.
Very tired tonight, and did very little after tea. Joy said she heard sirens about 9, and two explosions, but I did not. These are the first sirens for a week or two. She said she heard Manningtree, Brantham; Wenham and
Rumour in the town today about an old lady being murdered in
Audley Road by a soldier.
