May 25 - 29, 2002


Our plans are completed and we have already made reservations for 18 at the Bull. the schedule of activities will follow the pattern which has been so successful at our reunions in England. Most of our people will arrive on Saturday, May 25 and depart Wednesday, May 29, but you can extend your visit at the same special room rate.

As in the past, you or your travel agent should make arrangements for you to get to Peterborough. However, I am available to discuss questions you may have about this trip. I will take care of all necessary accommodations after you arrive at the Bull. There is no need to make any advance payment. You will make your room reservations with me and pay the charges to the hotel when you check out. They accept major credit cards. We were able to arrange for the same room rate what we paid in 2000 -- 49 pounds single and 79 pounds double/twin. This rate includes a full English breakfast.

I will collect from you, over there, the costs of our activities over the three days. This includes coach transportation, wreaths, admissions, one luncheon and our reunion banquet. In 2000, this charge was 60 pounds per person. With inflation, it may be slightly higher this year.

Sat., May 25 Check in at the Bull. Memorabilia room open PM
Sun., May 26 Begin our reunion with visit to our old Glatton Air Base.
Memorial service at the 457th monument in the Conington Church yard. Lunch and visit to a nearby historic site.

We know that we are probably biased, but we think this is a great event. With a small group, you get to know everyone. Our English historians will be with us and they are great people. We welcome family and friends. I always say "bring someone with you -- they can help with the luggage and you'll both feel good about it! "
