12th to 14th Oct 1942: hot nights

12 Mon. Very cool, very dull. Cycled to Morden to buy cats' meat. Finished the trailing-edge extensions to 34ins wing, also fitted streamline stringers in nose of fuselage of this machine. Mr.Ward called about house repairs.

13 Tues. ...along line to Wimbledon, saw the Pacific loco No 21C6. also my Weymouth engine 423.

14 Wed. Cool, but a sensational rise to 60 degs at night! Dull, cloudy & boisterous. Took the modified 34ins lightweight to Wimbledon Common but dare not put it in the air owing to the high wind that suddenly arose; brought it back safe & sound but untried.
