Boats and planes.

                The WW1 centenary year continues in Anglia Afloat  with another episode of maritime endeavours to kibosh the Kaiser, this one relating submariner stories – though the previous two have also touched on them.  Submarine technology was still developing, with  C-, D- and the particularly successful, though much decimated,  E-class all in service at the same time and others following on.  The C-class didn’t even have a proper toilet but then submariners did get paid more.

                Meanwhile, airside and up to date, we have Northrepps (International) Airport close to Cromer, aircraft of all ages flying in of a fine weekend, most of them to breakfast at the Cabin Crew diner, haute cuisine and Full English. In August on Cromer Carnival Day – Wednesday 20th this year – flying acts use Northrepps as their base (though not the Red Arrows – no sense of adventure, some people).  Read all about it in the June issue of Suffolk/Norfolk Life.
