1st July 1942.
My Darling,
Many thanks for your letter this morning. I am pleased to hear that Hilda has a girl. They had not told me Auntie has not even notified [corrected] me [/corrected] as to whether she has received that £5-0-0 or not yet If you are writing you might ask her to let either you or me know. If she has not I must put in a claim to the P.O.
I am browned off. I am missing you & the boys & we are starting to get really busy again now. On top of that there are bags of overseas postings. My name came out of the hat (Thats [sic] how we work it here.) last, but I was just one too many so I got off that lot once more. There is going to be a big clearance over the water soon.
I dont [sic] know what to do about this Flight engineers Course. I would certainly not be abroad with that but I am afraid I shall soon be for the boat otherwise I dont [sic] fancy being a prisoner of war for 3 or 4 years any how. It is a bit of a bind altogether still we shall have to
[page break]
grin and bear it.
Dont [sic] bother about Pyjamas if aunt Jessie does not send any well Ill [sic] see if I can touch grandad for enough coupons for 1 suit any way I thought it was 12 coupons for 2PRS.
Well my love I must close now but I missing all awfully
All my love dearest
[underlined] your [/underlined]
