5th October 1943: 'failed to return'
5 Tues. Mild, dull, drizzle later. Cut the lawn. Gwen & Laurie brought some meat for Dinky. Learned with regret that John of Basingstoke who is in the R.A.F. failed to return after an operational flight over Germany. I hope & pray that news may yet arrive of his safety.
