June 7th 1944

I go down to Cosford after quite a party with Jarvis the night before, and put up in the Mess there. I meet one F/L “Dicky” Dee who has been having treatment for burns for 13 months now, and we go to see a show, and I am very taken with one of the stars, a WAAF officer, one Hazel Palit. Also I have my appointment with the E.N.T. specialist the next day and leave after lunch. He gives me an X-ray and says there is nothing the matter except a change of climate, which I think is balls. A huge Mess at Cosford, and you telephone to the bar when you want a drink.

My posting not in yet, so I’m off to Poulton as C.G.I. tomorrow until it comes. Hope to get some flying and one or two other things two.

    It is interesting that he makes no mention of the activity going on in France. I wonder if this was because of security concerns.

      You are right. I suspect that service personnel have been told to write nothing about the build up or rumours of D-Day invasion (which there must have been) in letters or diaries.

        I did notice that there had been quite a party the night before, and I suspect that it might have been a D-Day related event.
