Thursday March 28th: usual work. Afternoon came on to rain. Went up on a job of work. Engine overheated. Ridiculed by Major. Radiators proved to be half empty. Went up again. Very heavy rain. Decided to abandon job and fly straight back to [Abbeville]. Filthy weather, filthy flip. Found new aerodrome. Norton shot down. Tea at the old lady’s on the other side of the road (Who had recently lost her son in the French Army). Unloaded kit in the rain. Topping dinner at the Tête du Bœuf. CO acts the schoolmaster out of school.
