March 4, 1943
Still lying in Harbour, but warned to be ready to leave in 2 hrs notice, so have all tarps and canvasses packed. Just got into bed and asleep when Bruce Trotter flies in with “Fighting Group” ready to move off in one half hour. Bert, Mike and I scramble out of bed and get loaded on our carrier. We move north thru Winchester to “Grotto Copse” a wood about eight miles south of Newbury. Arrive at 4 a.m.
