Saturday 1st June 1940

Rather warm, intermittent cloud and warm sun: good. Cut the privet hedges & bush in front garden; had little Peter Child to help me clear up the leaves afterwards: gave him some flowers. Walk to Wimbledon Common to see how much room is left for flying, as the place is criss-crossed with trenches - not much, but saw some modellists I knew.

On this day:

  • the evacuation from Dunkirk continues (below)

  • also today, first US battleship launched since 1921, in Philadelphia, the U.S.S. Washington
