Sunday 12th April 1936

Easter Sunday. How the NE wind tore at us on the Lincolnshire coast!

Richard, Robin and I walked from Trusthorpe to Saltfleet St. Clements. In the morning it was sunny and quite warm, as we wandered in the wind sheltered sand hills, exploring old trenches.

We looked at targets on the RAF danger zone. Lunch at Theddlethorpe, whilst a snowstorm raged. Found an old wooden house in the hills which Dick called “Wrecker’s Castle”. Further north were the war-time pill-boxes, unchanged.

The snow became a steady rain at Saltfleetby. (18 years since I was here!) We came back by bus. Just enough money for the three of us!
