GWL 29th July 1917

No news.  Your letter about the air raid came to-day.  Dive for the nearest dug out when they come over.  It does no good messing about looking at them, when you have seen one you have seen the lot.  Rather surprised that they fired shrapnel over London.  As a rule they fire tinned H.E. over areas where there are many people.  I had a Captain man down here on a course who was at Rugby and lives at 38 Harrington Gardens.  Quite a nice lad.  He was at Rugby five years after I left.”

38 Harrington Gardens is now Hotel St Simeon, a 2* budget Hotel!
