Thursday 30th May 1940

Rather warm, some pleasant sun. Along line to Wimbledon to fetch my new blue mixture suit from Rego's. Walk in evening to post a letter. The first rose out in back garden is Desmond Johnstone; scarlet cerise and ochre yellow.

Chart (click to enlarge) showing the routes, together with their distances, which were used between Dover and Dunkirk during the evacuation, Operation Dynamo. Ostend  is a few miles to the east. (Fold-out chart in John Masefield's 1941 book The Nine Days Wonder. )
