Friday 8th August 1941

(“The time will come,” said James Maxton, “When mankind will burrow into the earth like vermin to escape foul death from the skies”)

Yes, we're still in the tunnel, waiting for the destroyer. It's pretty crowded now. This is the third night. We don't think it will come now. Perhaps tomorrow.
There are very few flies down here. We can hardly hear the bombs or the harbour gun, either. But the air is very close and oppressive.
