A new fair page. What grim dark days
shall pass ‘ere every vacant page
is covered with the record of our simple ways?
Alas! We know not, that it ‘ere shall be complete.
# SON RON’s 20th BIRTHDAY – RAF TRAINING HAS BEGUN
Yesterday was Ron’s birthday, he was 20, born 2 years after the war that was to end war. Now he is training to join in this still greater war. I am tired to-night so think I will write another time, I am already in bed.
May’s son Ron had begun an apprenticeship with Joe Jackson, a local carpenter/joiner in the village but had left early to join the RAF in mid November 1940. His initial training was at Padgate, Lancashire.
May’s Diary entry on this day was unusually short. Please return tomorrow or soon – or sign up for RSS delivery or e-mail notifications.
Have you read an introduction to May Hill & family (includes photographs) and explored ‘The Casualties Were Small’?
