a couple of hours with us for lunch and a look around the museum. Planning
for this visit started some months ago and it is good to report that it was
a great success. Rod, Anne, John, Robbie, Sheila & Steve were present at
the museum. George, Bettie, Vyv and Barbara joined us at the airfield to
welcome them and to see them depart.

They are on Exercise Founding Fields, visiting former Coastal Command
