just to see that he gets the

two pounds. The payments date

back to 1st Oct but that

won't make much difference

to me as I was drawing

Majors' pay during most of the

period. Hope I shall not be

long before I do so again

    The CO will be back again

in two days time + then I

shall go back to A Company

again. I hope he has become

more pleasant after his visit

home. I haven't any news but

as you say letters are a

great boon + I also like writing

I love you Sweetheart + it

does seem a long time since

we were together. May the days

pass quickly until we are

right side

together again. Tell Kenneth

Daddy sends him lots of love

+ kisses + congratulates him

on the part that the Government

has at last recognized his 

importance. I am sorry I didn't

put his kisses in last time

but Ill remember this.

All my thoughts come to you.

May all happiness wait

upon you. Heaps of kisses +

all Love

        Your own Hubby

               Harold
