My dearest darling,

Just a very hurried line to say that my pass has gone through OK, so you can expect me sometime on the 22nd which is Tuesday dear.

I received a nice letter from Spiros today but he has been moved to a terrible camp so he says near Grantham so I shall not have much chance of seeing him unless I get a day off.

How are Pamela & you today sweetheart, I do hope you are OK and I am glad to say I am fine.

I did not receive a letter from you today but hope to hear from you tomorrow dearest

Well I'll close now sweetheart with all my love & may God bless you both & keep you safe for me always.

For my little cherub bless you from Daddy xxxxxx
