Monday 3rd June 1940

Grand, warm, cloudless day, but boisterous cooling N.E. wind. With Alan Spooner to Wimbledon Common. Flew our model aircraft under adverse conditions with fair results. My first flight was really magnificent but subsequent ones were mediocre. The ground is very dry and had to water Mother's grave and the garden.

On this day:

  • Paris bombed by German aircraft
  • Norway sought partition, recognising they couldn't regain control of all their territory in short term
  • USA released surplus aircraft and weapons to UK
