13th March 1948: Summer Time begins
13 Sat. Rather mild, some hazy sunshine but dull, misty, chilly later. With Laurie, Donald, Leonard Conley and Clifford Gover to Wimbledon Common to fly the small spar and the large model with the new 41½ ins span wing. The spar performed admirably but there was rather too much wind for the large one as it has a much longer range and would soon have drifted right away. Must try again under more favourable conditions but the new wing has a great deal of lift and would fly at a great height if fully wound: it is too good for the Common. Summer time begins.
