Autumn Offensive complete, a great success!

We left these shores, as did Arthur, from Folkestone (we used Eurotunnel) and crossed to Calais on 7th September. We returned on the 10th after having a superb time visiting Arthur's old haunts, his airfields whilst with 40 Squadron and a few other significant places besides.

Put briefly, our objective was to see what remained of the airfield infrastructure, soak up a little of the atmosphere remaining and bring our small team together as a whole for the first time. I will not write the whole exercise up here but will say it was an unqualified success, we all thought so. The AO concluded with us all paying our respect at Arthur's graveside at Terlincthun, Wimille.
