In England, Kenneth E. Cline wrote to his wife:

Tomorrow they expect the weather to be inclement again.1 I was planning on going down to see Verne — called him up today but couldn’t reach him.

Notes & Commentary

1 On Easter, the 392nd Bombardment Group planned on having a picnic at Castle Acre, the ruins of a historical priory within walking distance of Station 118, Wendling. The weather failed to cooperate, and the picnic turned out to be a wiener roast using fireplace in the Group’s library. It took over three hours to roast all the wieners.

    On this date in 1945, Operation Iceberg began … one of the war’s bloodiest engagements.

    Am I out of sync ? Or is Kenneth unaware that Verne was killed earlier or am I wrong?

    Perhaps the weather didn’t cooperate but I would be pretty sure the wieners were happily devoured. 🙂
