January 30, 1944 – Sunday

SONY DSCJerry was over last night to bomb. They have a new bomb now. A rocket bomb. We could watch them fire it from the planes. He came back over again about 12:30am and I’m telling you my nerves are just shot. They dropped one bomb close by and I shook the rest of the raid. My God I was scared. He came in so low you could bat them down with a club. We built an air raid shelter today. Just like the Jerries build. We dug way down and then covered it up with twigs and dirt. It’s pretty good though. There is very little going on and we are not advancing very much. We’re going to set down in our dug out and talk till bed time.
