Friday 2nd August 1940

Temperature up to 68 degs. in the shade and 90 in the sun - a little more summerlike but a dreadful boisterous cool wind made it a hot-cold door-slamming day. Flew 37 ins model on Rec in evening with the Spooner boys. Got great results in half a gale. Also played cricket with them; have not entirely forgotten the art of spin bowling.
On the day: this month (not necessarily today) saw first flights of Focke-Achgelos Fa 223 Drache transport helicopter, also, at Peenemunde, DFS 194 research aircraft under full rocket power.
