Monday 10th June 1940

Very mild, half dark all day: very humid and misty. Uncle Ben called. Walked along rail path all the way to Wimbledon. Italy declared war on Britain and France today for no reason that was given. The Germans are still advancing in France.

On this day: ...and Canada declared  war on Italy... and French officials began to leave Paris for Tours, and the French government made a plea for help 'before it is too late' to the USA.
