4th April 1943: double summer time
4 Sun. Very mild, pleasant genial sunshine; lovely Spring day. First day of double summer time; the clocks are now two hours ahead of G.M.T. Walk on playing fields; watched a football match. A balloon was let up from a winch beside Bushey Road to-day. Walk along Arterial road in evening; hardly dark at 9.0 p.m.
