Friday 28th June 1940

.
Rather warm, some genial sunny periods, ,ovelt evening. Weede part of the garden and cut the lawn. In afternoon to buy something for Dinkey. Alan Spooner brought back loud-speaker. Flew the low-wing model on Wimbledon Common in evening with excellent results in the small space** now available. Saw some boys I knew with models. The boy with the 'Duro' plane could not get results so I fixed the tail of mine to his and it flew with perfect steadiness; so he is going to make a new tail like mine. Saw another modellist I know who had a smale-scale Messerschmitt 109. The air tonight is redolent with the perfume of lime blossom.
**Note: Fred said wartime anti-tank trenches and searchlight batteries etc on Wimbledon Common had restricted the area which aircraft models could be flow - the need areas in which to land on reasonable smooth ground, even assuming the modellists are allowed into WWII 'military' areas.
