My Own Darling Wife,

  Ta for your lovely letter (23)

received this morning. I had spent the

morning going round the companies

watching the training & the letter arrived

when the morning's work was just

finished - a good beginning for a 

pleasant afternoon. We are still

having lovely weather & I enjoyed the

hours spent in "night ops" last

night. There is still no word of our

moving as yet so we go on training

& preparing. I am pleased to hear

that Kenneth thinks & says such

nice things about his Daddy & perhaps

I may come home soon & have a

nice time. Soon would certainly 

be a surprise but one may expect

all unexpected things in war - so
