June 21-22, 1944

June 21 – We are lying in the Thames Estuary with hundreds of other ships, waiting to sail, but as there is a storm in France we cannot land so are waiting here.

June 22 – The Manchester Reg. and ourselves put on a combined concert party tonight. We have our Orchestra on board tonight, conducted by Can. Corps H.Q. – assisted by our orchestra. We expect to sail tomorrow night.
