Wednesday  22nd May

Tomorrow I will take Mrs. Elizabeth Ridgway ( Miss Elizabeth Scott-Paine) to tea in Brockenhurst, Hampshire

At the weekend I will drive to  Suffolk to look again at the 1937, Seaplane Tender which is being offered to our
Coastal Motorboat Heritage Trust for the sum of one penny.


When we receive the vessel, we will  hope to take it by road to Hampshire where I and others can set about installing the two engines and steering gear.

My Son Nicholas has invited me once again to nice Nice in the South of France.  He feels that an Old Man
will appreciate sitting by the Pool and sipping Lemonade,  he could have even have said “sipping lucozade”
Whereas I will probably sit in the sitting room sipping Red Wine and watching the T.V.
