My Own Darling,

  Just a short love note

to say that I am very fit 

& well. When I had my head

dressed this morning the Doc

was very surprised & said "Well

you must have wonderful flesh."

The wound had got a good

scar over & showed no signs 

of being anything but

perfectly healthy. I have had

rather a busy day in a way

although I count myself off

duty. We are re-organising

somewhat & probably the C.O. is

leaving & another one coming in

his place so I have been

doing office work. However I'll

tell you more about that
