17th Mar 1945: first time I have seen British jet planes
17 Sat. Rather milder than yesterday, cloudy; not much wind. Made a wooden box, filled it with rich soil and sowed seeds of Russell lupins. Bought fish at shop in Martin Way. Bought a chocolate cake in Morden and other things locally. Starting repairs to fence on other side of garden to that which I started on previously. Heavy rocket with double explosion at 5.15 a.m. In morning saw two British jet-propelled planes. They make a very loud rushing noise, are very fast but seemed to be swaying a lot: saw another in afternoon: these are the first British jet-planes I have seen.
