Tuesday August 26th
Went to range and shot with Bren & Tommy. Swim. Parade in afternoon. At night Jerry bombed hell out of aerodrome. Bombs getting too close to us got in slit trenches. Could see him dropping his flares lighting the place up like day. Ammunitions dump caught fire. As each bomb exploded shook our hut. Night fighters and ack-ack (anti-aircraft) fire soon chased him away.
