Christmas greetings - wasn't I energetic.

We shall all be glad to get back

for a rest. I feel the need of it

& I had leave in England whilst some

have had no real rest at all

for some months. The rest will be all

the more welcome as it is somewhat

unexpected though hope started the

rumour some time ago. I am keeping

very fit & well. Managed to get a good

sleep from 2:30 am this morning.

My dug out is very cosy though a 

little crowded. Tell Kenneth Daddy would

have loved to have been home for

Christmas. Give my love to everyone. I

love you Darling & want you very very

much. May all happiness wait upon 

you Sweetheart. Heaps of kisses - a big

hug & all my love.

Your own Hubby

Harold
