Mrs Short, here, was probably of the family who lived in one half of ‘Ashleigh Villa’ (following Mrs Mason and Miss Riggall – see 21 Apr. 1941), although there were others in the village.

John Meldrum, a friend of Ron, was serving in the RAF. The family house had been near Ashleys’ bungalows, accessed off Anderby Road, and was later the home of Walter and Eva Banks (see 21 Oct. 1941) following their marriage.

Rose, here, was May’s sister-in-law, George Hill’s widow (see 2 Feb. 1941).

The next Diary entry (1 Nov. 1942) contains more detailed reporting of the Skegness bombing on 24th October.
