Dearest One,
Just a wee note for now – it’s late and for all the sleep I’m getting I’m tired. Blow me “Sahr”!!
Thanks heaps for your double effort which I recieved [sic] yesterday lunch time Pet. Don’t harrass [sic] yourself will you kid, we’ll get someplace to stay in the Lakes yet but please let it be good weather. Oh Hell.
There were Ops. on today right up [deleted] and [/deleted] until 6.30 when they eventually decided to scrub it.

We probably shouldn’t have gone anyway as we were only reserve crew tonight. That all means that we would have to get dressed for ops. and then wait until the last “kite” was off – [deleted] that [/deleted] then our job was done. It’s bloody measley.
I have written my brother and brand new (well not so brand new now I expect) sister Pet telling ‘em serve ‘em right.
No more for now Sweet so will pack.
All my ? darling
Ever yours
Malcolm
