Thursday 11th July 1940

Very mild, very cloudy, with just a few bursts of sun; boisterous cool wind. To Wimbledon along railway line. Bought shoe-laces at Woolworths and ox heart for Dinky. Saw locos Lord Nelson and Lord Colingwood both with 24 ins. diameter chimneys. Alan Spooner called about improving a loud-speaker cone. Short walk in evening; watched gun practice on the fields.
