January 26th 1945


I don’t get up again due to the weather – fog and snow. V1s rush overhead all day today and yesterday and we hear the guns opening up on them in the I.A. zone. Yesterday afternoon, led by the Group Captain, we man the A/A bren guns outside the Ops room and shoot at the blue Met balloons, with no small success. Today we hang around until lunchtime, and then it begins to snow. The 1st Canadian Army have a small battle on – “Operation Elephant” – to clear an island north of the Maas, and the guns can be heard all day, but we cannot help them. My camp bed breaks, though fortunately I bring a spare set of legs from Lasham. No papers, and all I can get hold of to read is Conrad.
