Dearest Angel,
Thanks heaps for your letter which I recieved [sic] about an hour ago. Thanks too for sending the comb along [deleted] Pet [/deleted] (mucky b – s!) Pet. As a matter of fact I have another but it isn’t much use.
We didn’t do Ops. last night as you probably know but we were briefed and got as far as getting out to the Air craft. I was awfully glad it was scrubbed because I wasn’t a bit keen. Matter of fact (said that before too) I think the strawberries and raspberries must have upset me somewhat. But they we [sic] nice just the same and it was worth it. However, I feel O.K. again but I’d rather wait ‘till after leave

before Ops. Getting lazy.
I haven’t had any replies to my pleas to the hens in the North yet. Should be something for me tomorrow.
Tag and I tried to grab the Gunnery Leader this morning but his Office was full of bods (as usual) and nowt could be did. We’ll see what we can do this afternoon.
Darling, you are forgiven for saying no the other night but that’s not what upset me. You can say no any time you wish and I won’t care such a helluva lot. You said you wanted to wait and see if that’s all I came to see you for and it was that which hurt, and how.
I assure you Pet that that is not why I come to see you. I come because I love you and what better reason

could anyone want. At the time it seemed you were more or less experimenting with me.
But let’s forget it all darling. You are completely, totally and lovingly forgiven so please don’t worry. After all I don’t blame you now.
I think I have run short of news (there isn’t any anyway) so will say T.T.T.T. (Ta ta till tomorrow).
All my fondest love.
I do love you darling.
And hundreds of x’s
Yours
[underlined] Malcolm [/underlined]
