My Beloved,

  If there had been the

slightest chance I would have

come but I couldn't possibly get

leave much as I wanted it. I

wanted to be with you to help 

you for I know what a loss

it is. I am glad to hear that

Dad left everything in order as

we expected he would. I do

hope Ma is keeping well & that

many full years are in front of

her. There are so many of us to

look after her that we ought 

to be able to see that she is as

happy as possible. Things are 

in good hands with Ted & John.

  Yes the show was all right.

Dean distinguished himself

though you won't read that 

in the paper & I expect we'll

get the D.S.O. I missed that

bit and also a lot of bullets

at the same time. Dean I think

got eight holes through his

tunic but only got his shin

grazed once. Glad you

heard from Jules

  Yes there is a big break
