June 11-12, 1944

June 11 – We are still waiting for the order to move – still on 6 hrs. notice. The news from France still sounds good. Art Rice Jones was in to pay a visit yesterday. He is with the Calgary Highlanders.

June 12 – Folkestone and Dover both got quite a shelling from across the Channel. Some damage done, but not an awful lot. Convoys still passing in the Straits.
