Saturday 27th July 1940

Very mild, become quite chilly later. Rain, sometimes heavy at intervals throughout the day; short thunderstorm midday. Out to buy Dinky's weekend food and to get the accumulator. Alan and Fred Spooner called about wireless. Harold called in evening.
On this day: in Japan, foreign nationals were being arrested, being accused of links with spying. The British ambassador in Tokyo was told that Japan was determined to create a new order in its region, which Britain was resisting, and that it was difficult to see how a fundamental clash could be avoided.
