28th May 1943: helped fit a Hurricane's wing

28 Fri. Rather warm; lovely sunny day. Did shopping locally also cycled to Morden meat shop. While on my way there saw a Hawker Hurricane fighter being taken into Mostyn Gardens for the Merton "Wings for Victory" week. In afternoon went there and saw it unloaded by a motor crane & saw it assembled. I myself helped to lift a wing into position. Washed the downstairs floors and beat & brushed the rugs and mats as Miss Dickson had a day off to-day. Mr Bonham called twice and left some manuscript for Ciss to read: he is writing a history of Wimbledon Methodism.
