Saturday 20th July 1940

Between very mild and rather warm; some moderate sun: rain morning and night. Flew the 37 ins high-wing on Wimbledon Common but was driven home by a heavy shower and got soaked. Made two short-wave coils for Alan Spooner.

On this day: news that Syndey, an Australian light cruiser, sank an Italian cruiser yesterday in the Med, in a fight near Crete. The cruiser was Bartolomeo Colleoni.
