R.A.F. Waltham
Good Friday.

My Darling,
Many thanks for your letter Received this morning. Time has gone so quickly since I came back, that I had no idea it was Friday today. Although I have not done any ops. I have been Airborne quite a lot. I have been to Northholt London (I think Ken Jones is there) & to Exeter & Warmwell and quite busy with Station duties. I am expecting to go for my interview for my commission any time now. It should have been on the 20th but the A.O.C. was away.

I was afraid of [corrected] David [/corrected] getting that cold. although I dont [sic] think it was the “move” that did it. It was running around in the garden without

a Jacket.

[underlined]I am [/underlined] fearfully fed up dearest. I shall be mighty pleased when this lot is over.
[underlined] I am [/underlined] glad you enjoyed your [corrected] day [/corrected] & M/C School too.
It was almost like old times. Never mind there are more to come.
Well dearest I must close now with all my love for you as always
Your Ian xxx
