Flier's Attend Party in Leeds
by Lt. L. P. Arnold, "Chicago", Mechanic
As usual the day was spent in the hangars on the machines. We quit early at 4:30 -- to get dressed and go to a party at Bob Blackburn's in Leeds, 40 miles away. General Branila, Air Vice Marshal, arrived just before we left and went with us.
Blackburn's home is a wonderful place -- a large roaming typical English home, large grounds & gardens, stables, kennels & everything to go with just such a home. There were a number of guests there for dinner, afterwards there was dancing, and a general good time. Harding [Mechanic of "New Orleans"] & I through a mix-up in rooms turned in on a narrow cot but got along fine.
