Fancy Kenneth being two years old

tomorrow so it is just about two 

years to day that I came over on leave

from Luton. What a long long time

ago that seems in some ways. I

wonder whether Kenneth's parcel has

arrived yet + whether he enjoyed

opening it + finding out what it

contained. Did you get the barrow

for him I guess he will be really

excited when he becomes possessed

of one - his very own. I had a

long letter from Shelton last night. He

is back at the School again + is a

"Cadet Officer" waiting until he is 18½

years old + then he will go to a

Cadet School for training until he

gets his commission. The changes have

made a difference to the school

especially in the matter of Boarders
