Alec’s diary continues:
Caught 8.43 a.m. Finished off Laira and continued with Bristol Diagram. Finished the Mondays to Saturdays. John started Mondays only and Saturdays only. Charles and myself doing other work for Mr Hill. Paid for tea and buns in the morning. To the club for lunch not too good. Glasses have arrived but they seem to be all frame at the moment, have worn them all the afternoon. Caught 5.5 p.m. Charles has permission to go to Birmingham on 6.10 p.m. Sprats for tea, managed about half of them. Hope they won’t repeat. Siren at 7.50 p.m. Planes and a little gunfire. Dark as pitch out but moon rising. All clear at 8.40 p.m. Nothing about for last half hour. Finished off one novel and will start the next. Bed at 11.0 p.m. no more sirens.
