Got up at 6:00 and ate on the boat at 7:30. We disembarked & boarded the train. We had a very nice crossing and I enjoyed a good nights rest. We left Nachem, England at 9:15 and arrived in London at 3:00. Went straight to the office and upon arrival found out Lt. Edwards was lost in action that morning. I came back to the field that nite with Capt. Culver who was in London & Lt. Edwards was taking his place. It was quite a blow to me  for the Lt. was a very good friend of mine. Only 2 parachuted out of the plane. It was passed black out time when we arrived so I sorted out my clothes & hit the hay. I was all tuckered out & nervous.
