28th May 1944: 'had a blessed time'

Whitsun Day. 28 Sun. Rather warm, lovely sunny day. Only a few children called to-day. There will be fewer now as scholars over 7 will go straight to Cottenham Park School instead of Whately Av. Went to Church in evening and stayed to Holy Communion; had a blessed time. Mr. Luccock preached. Doris stayed in night.

On this day: Canadian troops take Ceprano, in Italy. US troops suffer severe losses on Biak, New Guinea, against a Japanese attack, but General MacArthur says the New Guinea campaign is virtually over despite some fierce fighting anticipated.
