I had a most interesting time during the few days I was away, visiting several aircraft works & meeting lots of my friends.
I flew in the turbine driven “Lincoln” & enjoyed it.
Glad to hear that you enjoyed the eggs, we will bring some more when Mummy & I come over to see you again
With much love from us both & a goodnight. X.
Yours ever
Daddy.
