Wednesday 7th August 1940
NOTE TO READERS: we're catching up! Several 1940 days just added - we should have caught up with 1940 in a couple of days.
Warm, dismal, yellow light & slight shower mid-day but brightening up later. Walk along Arterial Road. Uncle Ben and Frank called in evening. With Frank to Joseph Hood's** to demonstrate the 37 ins aero, and it performed well: showed him the anti-aircraft station. Oh, Alan Spooner gave me a Wearite Universal coil.
