As Time Goes By...
Tour to WWII England
May 25 - June 1, 2022
March 20, 2021
To the 416th Family,
Steve Roy, Ross Stewart, and Vernon Williams have put together a plan to visit England in May 2022 that will center on the Wethersfield Museum at the old 416th airbase and other places where the air war unfolded during WWII in East Anglia.
The tour will include six days in England and two travel days—eight days in all. To eliminate a tour company and extra expenses, everyone on the tour will pay as you go for their own airfare, train, meals, and hotel. The group will share the cost of a van that Vernon will rent in Braintree and drive for the group. We will split the cost of the van and gas so we can make the trip as inexpensive as possible with no middle man expenses. Having the van will make our visit more flexible, able to go anywhere at anytime, especially locally.
As you can see on the Day 3 plan, we will be on hand at the Cambridge American Cemetery for the Memorial Day ceremony and wreath laying observance. This will be a special day for all of us.
The daily sheets that follow include a plan for each day of the tour, including the travel days. As we make the tour’s final arrangements, adjustments and changes will be made to the final itinerary packet that will be issued to each family who signs up for the tour. Please look over the individual day plans for the tour and consider if you will join us on this extraordinary odyssey.
You may contact Steve Roy, at telephone 425.344.3926 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
If interested, please let Steve know by no later than December 1, 2021.
Early decisions to go will be very helpful as we make our plans and arrangements.
