D-Day and beyond, part 2

Continuing the story of an infantry company 75 years ago.

4th June 1944

A disheartening day. We are all keyed up for the invasion and had been trucked down to the docks, only to be told that the operation was postponed due to bad weather in the channel. Judging from the weather in Portsmouth I’m not at all surprised!

Back to our camp we went for a cold meal, the cooks not expecting us to return today.

Let’s hope it’s on for tomorrow, because now we know where we are going it will be very difficult fo keep a lid on. It’s going to be hard enough without Jerry expecting us.
