Mon 6th Oct 1941: painted blackout blind

Very mild, lovely warm sunny afternoon; perfect moonlight night. To do shopping in the morning including going to Wimbledon on cycle to get cats' meat. Flew 37 ins aero on Wimbledon Common in afternoon with good results including a flight of 105 seconds. Used the cane undercarriage but this is heavier than the normal one so shall discontinue it. Painted Ciss bedroom blind black to make it light-proof. Saw on the Common what appeared to be several smallish dragon-flies with slender black bodies and two pairs of perfectly clear wings. (Note: not quite as shown, but it's nice to have a photo here!)
