comment Is it necessary to make clear “when” an event occur in a flashback?
Well, you might be able to do it with paragraphs, but honestly, it's the kind of thing I usually find has to be considered in the context of the whole story. Saying "later that afternoon" is fine if you know what day it is, but I've worked on books where I've gone four chapters without being able to figure out what month I'm in, so "that afternoon" is insufficient. I can't tell you whether your question is too large for this site.

There's no way to tell without context. Everything around these statements will affect whether the reader has a sense of time or not.
