8th June 1944

Cloudy and cold.  Few ‘planes out at dawn.  In late, Capt. Folkard annoyed, as well he might be.

News of the invasion not very good, and a faint rumour spreading that something has gone wrong.  Papers full of glowing accounts of the wonderful treatment given to wounded – nothing else.

Flag on the Town Hall today for the King’s birthday.

Hervey Benham bought some more manuscripts down to Holly Trees tonight, left them there for sorting.

Cloud coming up again and rain beginning as I went to Boxted.  Conditions must be terrible in Normandy.
