In Great Barton on leave, while based at RAF Bomber Command, 115 Squadron at Witchford, near Ely

Barbara - Johnston’s girlfriend in Ontario

Dieppe - French town on the English Channel that was the site of an unsuccessful Canadian offensive in August 1942, that resulted in a high number of casualties

Mrs G - Mrs Gough, friend of Johnston who lived in Great Barton, Suffolk
September 1, 1944 (Friday)

Took a bath this morning and got up about noon or one o’clock. All away this afternoon so I wrote Mom and Barbara.

Nothing else much to say. War news extremely good. Canadians entered Dieppe today – big news to the Canadians.

Mrs. G. served the tin of blueberries for dinner tonight – they’d never seen anything like them before. Thought they were quite good.
