in the double mail tomorrow when 

I get back from the scheme. We do

not move until the end of the

month so we shall have had

a real good rest. I know it

is not easy for you to get

the letters posted Lassie but

I think I do very well indeed

for letters. Your letters do bring

me a big message of love +

they are good to receive + read.

I expected Herb had had

difficulty over those syphons. We

got one in working order + it is

a great boon. I don't think you

forget very much Sweetheart. I too

think it is rather rough luck my

missing the course - in fact I

am of the opinion that I have been

very unlucky these last

right side

few months - of course mine opinion

is biased. Yes the Old man does

A change is very difficult to get

when one is a fighting unit but

I think I may manage something

in time. The men like me well

enough Sweetheart + so do the men.

That is a great comfort but I am

afraid it doesn't get me any

further forward. I know my job

thoroughly. For nearly eight months

I have been instructing Officers + men

in their duties + now after  to-morrow

I have to go back again + someone

else come round + try to teach me.

They still put me on the Directing

Staff + I go round + cheerfully

criticise Bn Commanders.  All in the

days work I suppose. Don't worry

about Harry Lassie - You can't 

change him. Glad to hear that

Ma is much better + also Mary
