Sunday 21st July 1940

Between very mild and rather warm, heavy showers particularly in morning: periods of moderate sunshine. Jean and Audrey Child called. Long walk in evening - Martin Way, Morden Road, along footpath beside railway, thence over what is now the golf course to Lower Mordern, Camborne Road, Common Hill Lane and Common, home. Listened on short-waves at night, Uncle Henry came to dinner.
On this day: Hitler ordered that plans be prepared for an invasion of the Soviet Union, assuming that German resources devoted to war with Britain would soon be freed, through capitulation or invasion and conquest.
