June 19, 1943 – Saturday

” First air raid since we’ve been here.  Came on about 1:15 – I should say Sunday a.m. – lasted until 1:50.  Had a time getting everything blacked out.  Sure glad I was home from the yard.  Saw a plane in the sky but know nothing yet.  Balloons sure went skyward.  Moonlight nite – few fluffy clouds-real light.
