Dearest, [deleted] honey [/deleted]
Many thanks for your letter of Monday. I am glad you have the car back. The Price was not bad but I would have made him wait for his money. Be careful when you are driving (By the way have you heard any more about the Austen?))
Now I still dont [sic] know whether I have failed that exam. I know I have passed one, so I cant [sic] say how long Ill [sic] be here yet Ill [sic] let you know as soon as possible though.
Today it has rained the first time for [indecipherable] we [deleted] when [/deleted] went to Penzance. I do miss you so there is only one consolation. When
[page break]
this course is finished there will be this worry. Just work your allotted hrs then you are [underlined] free [/underlined]
[underlined] Thursday [/underlined]
I could not get this finished off last night dear so I am doing it [corrected] now [/corrected]. I still have heard nothing
I expected a letter today. I dont [sic] know whether you have written or not but the mails have been all beggared up lately owing to the raids on Plymouth
If you could get D down here it would be nice but it is no use doing anything about it yet though. I could get you a warrant for travelling & you can get for ½ fare then. I would think that would be about a £1 or 30/=
Well Ill [sic] have to go now the Corporal is yelling
Love to all Ian
