An extract from an A.R.P. Report, dated 31st October 1940.

"Region has reported that the dropping of high explosive bombs at Cosby followed immediately on the admitted showing of lights in the village street while the enemy bomber was overhead, and too much stress cannot be laid on the black-out, and the satisfactory screening of lights on the road."
W. T. Dowell
County A.R.P. Officer.

An extract from an A.R.P. Report, dated 26th September 1940.

" On Sunday afternoon September the 22nd at about 16.30 hours houses at Kibworth were machine-gunned from a low altitude and the raider proceeded in the direction of East Langton by Hallaton to Horninghold finding machine-gun targets on the way in the shape of motorists, cyclists and blackberry-pickers. This episode followed an unsuccessful attempt by the raider to bomb the L.M.S. Railway near East Langton. No casualties were caused in the county in this or any other raid during the month."
