Friday 26th July 1940

Between very mild and rather war. Rain in morning, clearing up to a pleasant day with a fair amount of moderate sun. Cycled against a stiff head-wind to Tolworth, where I sat in the recreation ground and watched a man and a boy fly a 6d Woolworths aeroplane with surprisingly good results. Had tea with Lily and Alb**, played the piano and saw the garden and stayed till 8.55 when I rode home in 25 minutes. Quite a nice time.

**at 98 Largewood Avenue, Tolworth - Fred's brother and sister-in-law.

On this day: the USA embargoed the shipping of aviation fuel and certain iron and steel to Japan.
