Friday 21st June 1940

Rather warm but getting cooler. Some moderate sun, less wind. Do some amount of gardening every day. To take accumulator to Whiteborne's in evening and called at Conrades in Firstway to get Harold's new address: showed Mr.S, how to bud a rose. Spooner's wireless broke down so gave them a transformer which Alan fitted and he says it is going better than it has ever done.

On this day: Hitler met French officials to accept surrender, in a railway carriage in Compiegne Forest, where 1918 Armistice had been signed.
