15th July 1940

To JOHN [DZhON][1].

Yesterday I was in GLOUCESTER and BRISTOL. The aircraft factories have not suffered from the bombing. There are a large number of barrage balloons for the factories' protection. There are a few 4.5-inch A.A. guns and LEWIS guns in the ground of the factory in BRISTOL. The factory [C% produces] BEAUFORT aircraft. There are traces of bombing in the town. There are patrols in this area by SPITFIRES and HURRICANES [SPIT. I. KhARR.]. The personnel of the whole flying [illegible] work on Sundays. There are only LEWIS guns on the aerodrome to defend the school.
