Wednesday 12th June 1940

Rather warm, fine and sunny. With Dad to see Merton v Wallington cricket match at John Innes. Also saw the rose gardens there, which were lovely. Flew the usual balsa on Joseph Hood's in evening with good results.
On this day: Churchill was in France, on a secret visit. Rheims and Rouen were occupied by Germany, and German troops were within 12 miles of Paris. Spain declared neutrality. The USA ordered 22 new warships.
