Dear Sister


Thanks for letter which I received Sunday, I

was pleased to hear from you, of course you know that

I am at Blackpool, I am in one of the best billets

in Blackpool. I get the best of food in fact I wish I

was stationed here for about six months. Well sister I hope

you are alright yourself. I will try to get down if I

can to see you if only a few hours, I hope they are

alright at home, I don't know how long I shall be

here I might have to go back any time to Preston but

I shall not like it after this. I thank you for the

parcel which I received before I left I don't need them

while I am here. I will close with best of love good night

& God Bless you.


I remain
