Friday 31st May 1940

Rather warm, getting cloudy & cooler, but a pleasant sunny day. Did some weeding in the garden. Watered dear Mother's grave in evening. Alan Spooner called saying trenches were being dug on Wimbledon Common, so it seems our model flying ground is doomed for the duration of the war.

On this day: in USA, President Roosevelt asks Congress for further $1.3b (in addition to previous $3b) for military preparations.
