23rd November 1943
Some cloud, and ground mist. Sharp frost this morning. Heard on the 8 o’clock news that there was a frightful raid on
last night. Without doubt the reprisals
which the Germans will make during the next few months will destroy many towns
in England, and perhaps
result in the final destruction of London.
Read “No Rain in the Clouds” by David Smith, an excellent story of farming at
during the last 100 years, very well written.
Father came into the office this morning, looking very well.
Went out to Higham at 6.30. Clouds coming up again, and rain beginning. No planes about and no Americans. These are the sort of nights I like.
