Dear Mother we are expecting to move any time so I am writing as I may not get another chance for some time.
We had a big air raid on some towns about five miles away last night. I’m glad to say they didn’t see fit to drop anything on us but they were buzzing about for 2 or 3 hours overhead the unfortunate inhabitants were very frightened quite naturally and spent most of the night collected together in a few houses praying and crying. I cant help laughing at it now but it was very pathetic then.
We were suitably frightened and impressed as all the houses shook whenever a distant bomb went off however we went to bed and hoped for the day.
I was watching two school children
