Dearest
Many thanks for your letters. I have not Received the parcel though. If you have sent it I may get it on Monday night. Has Pop done my watch yet? By this time you should be having your lessons with Arthur. If the weather up there is similar to this it will be grand. Yesterday was a scorcher. I spent all the morning on the beach with a book (I had to work in the afternoon though)
Well whether I have passed my exam or not I am off the course now & have re mustered as an Aero Engine Fitter so will in due course be getting transferred. I hope to Cannock. It may be Blackpool though. That would not be so bad either. Still I may be my luck to be sent to Scotland or some God forsaken spot off the map altogether. I cant [sic] say how long it will be before I go. It may be next week or it may be a month

The Reason I re mustered as an Aero Engineer Fitter is because it is the best pay.
My Ear was the [corrected] cause [/corrected] of this re mustering I had another Medical Exam on Friday and they spotted it then the M.O. here is very thorough. He wanted to know how they had missed it at Polegate.
I have signed the Prop’l [sic] Form & am posting it today. Let me know how much they want before you remit the cash, and By the way did Spann sign that Certificate?
I received a letter from Dad yesterday too. he enclosed a couple of Stamps and 2/6 PO from Grandad.
He was quite perturbed our David so let him know how the “Wikka Chap” is getting on.
I must really close now dear because I am doing Guard duty today & it is almost my turn to go on.
Love to all
Yours ever
Ian.
