Thursday 1st August 1940

Rather warm, a lot of sun with some warmth in it but very rough cool wind. Got American Station WNBI, New York in afternoon to show Alan Spooner. To buy something for Dinkey. In evening along Coombe Lane, By-pass and back by Bushey Road. Saw the mighty new searchlight on the fields.Card from Alb saying two bombs were dropped near Tolworth on Tuesday night. German aeroplane hovering about in early hours then went off and dropped bombs which I heard in Thames Estuary.
On this day: over the next few days, all Baltic States were incorporated into the Soviet Union, having been  invaded by the 'Red Army', meanwhile Italy geared-up its anti-Greece propaganda.
