High, light clouds, and cooler. Wind S.E. Went in early, but unfortunately there was an alarm at 5 past 9, as I was going down
Heavy rain most of the morning, and felt too nervous to go to lunch.
Had to leave at 4 today to get to the Post at 5. Heavy rain all the way, got soaked, and no tea either. A diver came up at 6, we could hear it quite plainly, heard it cut out, and the crash of its explosion. Centre told us that it was at Marks Tey, near Burmans Farm. Hope Frank Warren’s horses are alright. There have already been two in the Marks Tey area.
Was on with one of the “A” men tonight, a most unpleasant bad tempered brute. After the “diver” nothing else happened the whole evening. Wind shifted to W. and N.W. Got back to Woodside by quarter past 9, and had supper, thoroughly tired and very hungry. Sirens again at 11. Went out into the rain, and heard aircraft come over, but nothing else. Miss Bentley had gone up to bed, but she came down and got in the cupboard under the stairs until ‘all-clear’ sounded. Goodbody up too.
To bed myself at midnight, determined not to get up again whatever happens.
