Three page handwritten letter





Hut 39, 3. (C) O.T.U.,
West Camp,

My Darling,
I expected a letter from you today, but apparently you have forgotten this time
What is the great interest these days? Your letters seem scrappy & written in a hurry.
I had a shock on Friday night when I found out it was so near the 12th, & I had not written to Tony or sent him anything. It is more or less impossible for me to send him anything because I just cant [sic] get nothing here abouts
Last night we had
[page break]
[underlined] 2 [/underlined]
A rush job on & I was working until 2 A.M. & was dog tired this morning. Tonight I have finished early so I am going to look in the dance for an hour later.
Have you heard from Cheslyn Hay yet? I have not so far I dont [sic] expect to now but I am buggered if I am going to write and ask em [sic] now. Further more if the £5. Has gone astray I shall pay it out again.
How is Vera getting on have you seen anything of her yet? let me know wont [sic] you? That chap Hinchmoor from Ellesmere Port has gone on 72 hrs this week & he is going to make arrangements for his wife to go into hospital I think too. He is a very nice chap & he & his wife do want children.
[page break]
[underlined] 3 [/underlined]
I am sending that P.O. to Ipswich tonight so that will be a bit more off the National [corrected] Debt [/corrected] By the way how are you getting on with your Commitments have you sent anymore to Taylors at Walton yet?
Well love I have no news for you tonight except a bit of stale news. I still love you dearest strange as it seems & despite all the worries you cause me you are just about worth it. Aint [sic] you?
Good night my love
Yours Ever
