To the 416th Family,

Our 2020 tour to England has been postposed and moved to 2021 to allow our families more time to consider going over the pond with us. Steve Roy, Ross Stewart, and Vernon Williams have revised our tour plan to visit England in May 2021. The tour will center on the Wethersfield Airfield Museum at the old 416th airbase and other places where the air war unfolded during WWII in East Anglia. This is an opportunity of a life time.

The tour will include six days in England and two travel days—eight days in all (May 26 through June 2, 2021). 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. We are tentatively planning on staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Braintree. The group will share the cost of a van and gas that Vernon will rent in Braintree and drive for the group. This will 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.

May 31, 2021, 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.
