This is a brief note to let you know that I shall be home for Whitsun. As far as things go at the moment, I shall be home some time on Saturday, but we may get away Friday evening, so don't be surprised if I turn up then.
Yesterday, I had a busy day as Duty Pilot, and received two Air Vice-marshals, and dozens of S/Ldrs - who were massing here to attend a conference at 5 Group Bomber Headquarters. Of course, the D.P. is a very important man, and commands great respect from the visitors - I was saluted by a Flying Officer, and a Squadron Leader called me “Sir”.
I flew last night from 12 o'clock until 3:30, and got to bed at 4:30. In fact, I have only recently arisen, and it is practically lunch time now.
Tonight we have a Guest Night for members of the previous course, mostly P/O's, who are all posted to squadrons, and I expect it will be a bit of a riot.
Anyway, as far as Whitsun is concerned, expect me when you see me.
Cheerio, love to mother and boys,
P.S. New racket. Cadets are now doing duty as “Orderly Officer”. Good show!
