fo's'cle head where I get plenty of fresh

air. We have lots of music as there

are bands on board which are playing

nearly all day long. 

We get our breakfast at 7am, dinner 12.15

and tea at 5.15pm. We get coffee cheese and

biscuits at 8.15pm so you see they are not

treating us badly. 

How are the Nicholls tell them

I was asking for them. How is Bill, is he

a frequent visitor as usual, tell him I would

like to meet him at the front.

We don't know where we are going

to or even if we did we could not tell, as

the letters are censored and no news about

our movements are allowed to be sent.

I will now conclud [sic] by wishing you all

a very happy and prosperous New Year. 

Good-bye

From your loving Son

Tom
