My dear Mrs Wynn,
I hope you don’t think I have forgotten you. You are so often in my thoughts & I know what is uppermost in both our minds.
I am concluding you have still had no further news- neither have I.
One cannot help feeling depressed at times & I [corrected] can [/corrected] sympathise with you. It is very hard – this waiting & hoping.
I had news yesterday [inserted] from the Air Ministry [/inserted] that my son Geoff – in S. Africa, had been appointed as a Commission
[page break]
[inserted] 2 [/inserted]
It is nearly three years since I last saw him, & I am hoping he will have some “leave” before very long.
I am expecting my other son Jim & his wife to be home for Christmas. Jim is still on the ground but has recently been posted over 60 miles away from where he & Flo were living, & is somewhere in the wilds on S. Devon, miles away from anywhere. I do hope all your family are well & that mother is quite recovered by now. Try to keep a brave heart while there is still hope.
With love to you all
Yours very sincerely
F. Russel
