Your name Olds

Did you by any chance keep a diary of what happened to you that day?
yes- extract attached

Were any of your friends killed or wounded either during the landing or
during the day?
Do you remember any conversations you had with them before they became
Were you wounded? No
Do you remember what it was like--that is, do you remember whether you
felt any pain or were you so surprised that you felt nothing?
Do you remember seeing- or bearing anything that seems funny now, even
though it did not, of course, seem amusing at the time?
In so far as any of us recalled, the only flak
we picked up was fired by the U.S.Navy . It was not
funny then, and in view of the pains taken to paint our
aircraft with black & white stripes, hardly seems funny
even today.
Do you recall any incident, sad or heroic, or simply memorable, which struck
you more than anything else?
see diary extract, written the evening of 6 June.
