HUT 39
N [underlined] o [/underlined] 3, C.O.T.U.,
West Camp, R.A.F.,
CRANWELL,
LINC’S.
25th March 1942
My Darling,
Just a few lines in haste to inform you that I have changed my address. Surprised? I was! I was offered the chance on Monday & jumped at it.
This is an exceptionally large camp which may have its [sic] disadvantages, but it will also have quite a few advantages. At first glance it seems quite free and easy, but I am not taking that as granted yet.
I expect to work on Whitley bombers and will have no days off a week but get 72 hrs a month which will suit me better I think I can get home easier too from here.
As I have only been here
[page break]
a few hrs this evening yet I have not had time to find out much except that there is a nice swimming Pool (Indoors) here, and it looks good!! Also a [deleted] cinamera [/deleted] Cinema on the camp.
The camp is right in the wilds and is situated as near as I can make out 14-18 miles from Grantham & about 18 miles from Lincoln.
I have written to dad at Wyrley because didn’t know if you would still be there or not. I will write more as soon as I can find out things I am going to put in for 7 days [corrected] whether [/corrected] Ill [sic] get it or not is yet unknown
Well good night my love always
Yours
Ian.
