May, 1944 - July, 1944
Letters from Theodore Katz
Ted traveled to England in early May, 1944 and is stationed there until July. He and his fellow soldiers are camped out at Walton Hall, an estate complete with a castle and gardens that has been repurposed for military use. It not far from Stratford-upon-Avon. The weather is cold and rainy, which is not what they expected to experience in the summer. They are seeing the effects of war in the towns where they go, and rationing is severe. One of the letters he wrote (June 1) is censored, but we have a good idea of what was omitted by comparing it to the writings of other Ghost Army soldiers.
