Thursday 27th June 1940

Rather warm, some genial sunshine, pleasant. Went out in afternoon to buy liver for Dinkey also something at the chemists; returning along little rail path. Lent Alan Spooner a loudspeaker; he likes it better than his own. With him to fly his  models on the Rec. Good results in rather a gusty wind. I flew my low winger. His large machine flew off the Rec and into the wall of a house in Cannon Hill lane & damaged the leading edge of the wing.
On this day: President Roosevelt declared a national emergency. German troops reached the French-Spanish border. The French army in Syria surrendered to Germany. Factories in the Soviet Union switched to seven-day working weeks.
