Monday 17th June 1940

Rather warm, some nice soft sunshine but very breezy. France capitulates to Germany and is vanquished in the field and Britain is left to face the military might of Germany and Italy alone. To buy Dinky something and fetch accumulator; saw loco Lord Howe, with enormous taper boiler. Making out new ration books. Searchlight and anti-aircraft practice at night, picking out the machines very well.
