In the morning, they sorted out who we were. They had brand new pay books for us. They had new uniforms for us, boots, the whole, everything fitted out. We were asked a lot of questions that particular day. And then given a pass for 3 weeks, anywhere in the United Kingdom. I telephoned to a relative of mine in Scotland, right up the very North.

"Come up, whatever you do, come up." I got him on a train and two days later I was in Scotland. I spent my 3 weeks up there, shooting rabbits. The fellow that owned the farm. His name was Calder they were a distant relative, somewhere along the line, never ever found out where or why?
