Monday, 25th March 1940

Easter Monday. Rather mild but cold, boisterous wind, dull, some rain. Flew aero on Common with Alan Spooner. Used the lifting fuselage which gives good height but poor stability. Alb, Lily and Mrs. Jones came to tea. Played violin and Alb played the piano.

The 'Common' mentioned is Wimbledon Common. And 'Jones' was Lily's maiden name, so the Mrs Jones mentioned could have been Lily's mother - without more research, this is not certain. The piano was probably Albert's, but allowed to remain in his old home, with his brother Fred (the writer of this diary).
