23rd October 1943

Fine day.  Showers at times.  Nobody mentioned the raid last night, and only the briefest reference in papers, except that Churchill was inspecting a gunsite during the attack. 

Busy all morning.  This afternoon to town, shopping.  Heavy shower about 4.  Got away at 5.30, scarlet sunset.  Saw Ida by the roadside.  She still does not know when Blair [Hughes-Stanton] is arriving [he returned home to Stratford St Mary later that day after being released as a Prisoner of War from Germany].  Spent evening writing.
