The writer was clearly well-educated and able to speak fluent German. Many newscuttings are loosely inserted between the pages together with some notes made by the author and a few letters from relatives. Condition is Very Good.  1940. Fri.29 Nov. Planes droning at 11.50. Sirens wailed at 11.55.to-  at 12.45 heard a loud crash, then Sirens to 1.10p.m.; 1.45 to 2.40; at 6.20 guns began almost simultaneously with the Sirens. Left papers in the house, & in lull went in to get them. Soon the guns were appalling, shells tore through the air with great ferocity, like red hot iron hissing through steam, as well as the rattling noise of the machine guns.Every few minutes they come, & fresh outpourings of fire, by far the loudest we have had. On looking out of a creek of the door, we can see the flames to the Eastward, & parachute stars & concentration of searchlights. Next morning we heard one bomb had fallen in Sunderland Rd, & much damage in Stepney.
