Bill Nevard returned to visit the land of his birth , Suffolk and Essex, U.K. in the summer of 1975. A few entries from his brother's journal follow.

May 28: We landed at Heathrow at 11 am. I phoned Muriel. We went and saw Buckingham Palace.
May 30: We went to the National Maritime museum at Greenwich by river boat. We went to Foyle's book store and then to The Book restaurant for supper. I phoned Kelsale and Gifford answered.
June 1: We went to Holy Communion in St.Paul's cathedral. After dinner we went to Trafalgar Square and saw Nelson's monument and the four lions guarding it. Then on to the National Art gallery.
June 3: We went by taxi to Liverpool Street station and then to Saxmundham where we were met by Gifford. We had a royal welcome at Walnut Tree House. Gifford took us to see Kelsale Church.
