April 24, 25, 26 & 27, 1943

April 24: Easter Saturday. The days so far are not much different from the ordinary run. Tomorrow is Easter Sunday. I trust it will be the last one in khaki. Had a long talk with Ralph last night – I think he is at last reconciled to going back. Tough break for both of us, but absolutely necessary.

April 25: Easter Sunday. Group orders tonight – moving orders to Scotland for Combined Operations – probably means action in a few weeks. Feverish activity.

April 26: Bee hives today. Everyone working like mad – but things are taking shape. Attended a personnel selection Board this evening. Have decided to keep Ralph – have have kept him. He would otherwise be kicked around in a Holding Unit.

April 27: Still going strong everything taking shape. John Cross warned tonight he may be going back to Canada. Saw Mr. Spofforth tonight. Expect to go perhaps by Friday – we will go by train, but “B” Echelon will go by the road. Can’t be too quick for me now.
