Friday 19th July 1940

Between very mild & rather warm, some moderate periods of sunshine: more pleasant but for the wind. Out to buy liver for Dinkey and to take accumulator. Later took some white and mauve statice to put on Dear Mother's grave. Preparing short-wave wireless set in order to give it to Alan Spooner.
On this day: in Germany's Reichstag, Hitler said, "...I do realise that this struggle, if it continues, can only end with the complete annihilation of one or other of the two  adversaries. Mr Chiurchill may believe this will be Germany. I know that it will be Britain."
