July 2, 1942

Clint Richardson, Gordon Rolfe, Bill Hunt, Poop Deck Payne, Col. Reeves, John Begg and I together with a few other men, motored to Ryde and caught ferry to Portsmouth. From Portsmouth went by special train to Newhaven where we boarded T.L.C. Laid in harbour for five days, expecting to make an assault on the coast of France, but at last moment it was cancelled.
