Darling,
Many thanks for the parcel to hand today. It was as always exciting by welcome. I have not finished the Bl’ Currant [Blackcurrant] off yet but I was glad of that top because paper is so messy.
Tonight is the first full night off since I came back from leave, and I have laid on my bed and slept it is now 9.30 but that sleep is what I have wanted for over a week.
The chap in the next bed to me is that fellow from Ellesmere Port, & often has been asking me advice today. He & his wife want children
[page break]
( a boy & a girl) They have been [corrected] married [/corrected] 5 yrs. & [corrected] Nothing [/corrected] has happened. [corrected] Recently [/corrected] she has seen Dr’s & have advised an operation because apparently she has a misshaped [sic] womb or something. He naturally feels that he doesnt [sic] want his wife to go into dock while he is away, but at the same time they want Children & as he says they are both [deleted] es [/deleted] getting older Anyway I told him that if I was in his place I would let the wife get on with it. What would you do Chums?
While we are on the subject of Mothers to be, hows [sic] Vee?? I expect Bert will find things a bit uncomfortable now
[page break]
This is my last sheet of paper & time is drawing on and I am still dirty & tired so Im [sic] saying good night dearest with my love & thank David for his letter and tell [corrected] him [/corrected] to Hurry & learn a lot more words so that he can write me really long letters.
All My Love
Dearest
Yours
Ian
