June 15, 1944

Still no further word. It is getting pretty monotonous sitting around all packed, just waiting for word to go. I expect it will come one of these days. Canadian Army Show here tonight. Am having a muster parade today. Brig. Farmer the DDMS came over today and we went out and inspected the stretcher carrying device I had designed for the Storm Boats. They are good too. Lots of excitement here tonight. Air raid warning about midnight followed by what appeared to be his radio controlled planes (V-1 or buzz bombs) coming over. Three were knocked down. They kept coming all night. A very beautiful sight, but somewhat noisy.

A V-1 rocket, also known as a buzz bomb. V-1s were first launched at London, England on June 13, 1944.
