"..the holiday was cancelled owing to the serious turn of the war." - Uncle Fred.

Should have been Whit Monday but the holiday was cancelled owing to the serious turn of the war. Very mild lovely sunshine but a rather fresh breeze. First trial of my new low wing monoplane on Wimbledon Common in evening; great height but rather capricious on the glide. Aunt Liza and Maud called.

"I have nothing to offer but blood, sweat and tears." - Winston Churchill.

On this day: Winston Churchill, speaking in the House of Commons, said, "I have nothing to offer but blood, sweat and tears." He also said, "Victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road might be, for without victory there is no survival."
