Oct. 26, 1942

Sick parade finished. I am all dressed and ready to start for London for the Investiture at Buckingham Palace tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. John and I go together. We arrive in London at noon and go at once to our rooms in Mayfair Hotel; I go out to Harrods and John goes CMHQ. In the evening I go to Saville Theatre to see Stanley Holloway in Fine and Dandy. After the show, the two girls Irene and Nora, my guests at the Investiture arrive and we all go to dinner at the Mayfair and then to the supper dance.

    Sounded like some well earned R&R!

      Hi Ron. Absolutely! I can’t imagine how disheartening it must have been post Dieppe with so many men captured and killed. An opportunity to get away from it all would have been a blessing.
