4th - 5th August 1946: flying model aircraft
4 Sun. Fine, warm, sunny day with little wind; one of the best. Little Evelyn Baden-Powell knocked this morning and asked to see “Uncle Fred”, wasn’t that precious: she lives right at the other end of the road too but considers she knows me. Mrs Jordan to tea. Went to Church this evening; Mr East, A layman from Worcester Park, took the service.
5 Mon. August Bank Holiday. Warm, calm morning, breezy afternoon, much sunshine. Flew my new model in afternoon with good results in a stiff breeze. Long duration was not possible as the breeze would quickly drift the machine off the Common. Engall & Morton with their models were there. My machine suffered no damage.
