Thursday 6th June 1940
Very warm, brilliant, cloudless all day; the sun being very powerful. To Wimbledon along the line and bought herrings for Dinky. Watered the garden: getting very dry. Some nice roses out to-day, especially an exquisite lemon yellow Mabel Morse.
On this day: General Charles de Gaulle was appointed under-secretary of state for war.
