Dearest
Many thanks for your letter to hand this morning, I am sorry to hear that you are not too well but I am pleased hear you have written about a holiday at Rhyll, it should do you all good. I hope to have a few days at Wyrley about the 19th, but as I had previously said I dont [sic] I shall be able to manage Norley or Rhyll.
I have had a letter from Rex today in which [inserted] he says [/inserted] Grandad has written him a nasty letter telling him off about a lot of things also complaining that “we had taken a trunk of his Therefore I have written to Grandad saying that you will be writing to him when the trunk is returned to Wyrley. As far as “We know the trunk was dads [sic]”. [corrected] Also [/corrected] I have [underlined] not [/underlined] mentioned that I have from Rex yet so Please dispatch the Trunk (not the lock) & write and tell him that it is en route & make no comment what so
[page break]
ever about it.
I expect to take my L.A.C board within the next week, I think Ill [sic] pass it OK anyway Ill [sic] try. It will another 6 a day for me anyway. [underlined] 9th June [/underlined]
I had to pack up in the middle of the last sentence last night & go out and finish a job off.
Oh! When I was coming to Manchester the other day I saw some Para troop Exercises. They were dropping them at Mobberley. They looked nice coming down with [corrected] their [/corrected] white parashoots [sic] I was away from here just at the right time, because the whole of the while I was away they were working like hell& no one had had a single night off the whole time. Things are not quite so bad as that now
Hurry up and write a nice letter because it will probably be two months before I see you again & I shall miss you lots of times in that period & the boys too.
Well I must be closing now I want to write to Rex, & to Worcester.
All my love
Yours
Ian
