This must have been Surrey taken from nearly our favourite seat; I have written to Mrs Lemon(?) to ask her to put us up on Oct 1st if she can, it would be lovely to see you again and to have a respite from these endless nights! Two very nice Air Raid Wardens searched our garden during the night for Mrs Marshall heard a crash, nothing was found so I conclude it was a tile
Very much love from D and Me
