My Dear Kathleen,
Just a line in haste to let you know that I am alive. I am writing this in Rex’s Office I came down here last night to see Rex Re Dads estate. There have come one or to [sic] things up that we have had to get together about. I gave em [sic] a little shock by knocking them up at 3.30 this morning. I leave again at 2.35 this afternoon.
It is a difficult place to get to from Cranwell as Norley.
I have just been out to the station to inquire the times of trains & met Mr Lupton (from near Elmers) & he inquired as to the family & was surprised to hear I had two.
By the way we have just had a warning here. It was of short duration & nothing happened. A single Jerry came over here on Sunday and caught him napping not a shot was fired.
Well love I must close now with all my love to you & the Boys
Love Ian.
P.S. What was Tony like this time after my departure
