M. Thursday 16 May Wind changed round to NE direction, strong and cold. I went to the police station and enrolled in the Local Defence Corps. Daphne also tried to do so but her friend the station sergeant would not have her. Men who sit in dugouts and only come out when a raid is over get their £5 to £7 a week, but we who are to attack heavily armed parachutists have to do it for nothing! Rumbling of guns in the morning. Heard that Mrs Bush of North Road died during the thunderstorm last night.
Friday 17 May Rumbling of guns early shook the house. A Dutch refugee ship, full of men, women and children, is said to have come into Folkestone Harbour, having been chased by Hun aeroplanes all the way. Lympne Aerodrome is now underground. A 30-mile breakthrough near Sedan and the Belgians retiring, possibly cracking. I said at the start the Maginot Line would prove useless. Saturday 18 May Received letters from Tasker-Evans and Jerry resigning the secretaryship of the branch and clinic. Tasker-Evans blocks everything, gives no help and resigns when there is any trouble.
M. Aeroplanes over Ashford and big guns at Hythe. A gallant fight by three British light-armed cruisers against the Graf Spee. The Ajax’s Captain Harwood must be a fine man. Marvellous manoeuvring enabled them to dash in and hit like terriers with a badger. As usual, the first news made it into a defeat for us. Monday 18 December The Graf Spee sailed from Montevideo yesterday evening and was scuttled by her crew five miles out. It is said Captain Langsdorff sank with her. His action has saved life, but is ignominious.
