Friday 5th July 1940
.Rather warm, some moderate sun, pleasant. Bought more cycle enamel at Whitbournes. Finished the bike except final adjustments. Walk along line in evening; saw that local electric trains are now being painted in the new light malachite green. Alan brought in one valve amplifier for me to see.
On this day: French aircraft from Vichy Government attacked Gibraltar - Britain's Royal Navy had destroyed French ships in North Africa. Roosevelt began limited embargo on shipments to Japan.
