My Own Darling Wife,

  It is now 4-30 pm and after

being employed on first one thing

+ then the other all day I have a free

hour before a lecture on Gas. Still

it is much easier for me now

that the C.O. is back. The "Old Man"

came round this morning  + was

very mild. There was a kind of

mist when we turned out this

morning but it cleared away

a little and although it has

looked like rain all the day it

has kept fine.

 Everyone seems very fit + cheerful

in spite of all the hard training

they have been doing. Knox is away

on a short course but will be

back again tomorrow. The CO

spent two days in bed with

a high temperature when he returned
