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.
