I must tell you that it actually

is not raining. Of course it is wet

underfoot but that is nothing.

Now I must finish, give my kind

regards to ALL friends. love to

G. pa, G. ma and G. pa Howard, aunties

uncles, cousins & please be very very

particular about this. I dont miss

anybody out. Friend or Foe if

their are any of the last. Thsi war

should learn everybody how to forgive.

You should have seen our chaps

sharing their Rations with captured

"Jerries" whilst the war was on. To me that is a beautiful

thing and real practical Christianity.

God bless you everyone. Do try and

be real good children. I dont think

mother has much trouble with

you, anyway she has not said

anything to me if she has.

Love and kisses for all of you
