19 April 1942: a cuckoo, praise God!

.
19 Sun. Very mild, some genial sunshine but wind freshening - quite a nice day. Flew miniature spar aero on Common with promising results, shall now be able to trim it properly. No visitors. Wrote letter to Uncle Tom and Aunt Nellie. Heard the first cuckoo on the Common: praise God!
.
On this day:  USS Wasp, accompanied by HMS Renown, plus two cruisers and six destroyers, ferries 47 Spitfire fighters for Malta. 46 get there - but 36 of these are immediately destroyed.
