13 Jan 1944, Harry Ching's wartime diary
((Following text not dated:))
Wife paralysed by loud knocking at door one midnight. Refused open. Living constant fear being pulled in again.....
Mrs Smith asks us contact Zindel ((International Red Cross Rep)) re rent and water bills. Ada Williams says they must get out by 16th. Very short notice and if we not contacted would have been shorter. Red Cross was to sell their furniture, now says sell it themselves.
