Wednesday, 1st May 1940

Mild, dull, calm, not unpleasant. With Fred and Alan Spooner to the Common with their aeros - good results. The spring foliage and blossom is lovely.

A short entry, above, from fifty-plus-year-old Fred who, like a child, flew his model aeroplanes on Winbledon Common, while on this day:  Norwegian troops at Lillehammer surrendered to the Germans; Mussolini, despite Roosevelt's specific request for Italian neutrality,  told the USA that Germany could not be defeated with so many countries to call on for supplies.
