Dearest,
Just a line or two while I am waiting for a line from you. I have not heard since Friday. I was hoping for one today.
Well what do you think of his news now. I bet Pop is pleased. I hope we can keep it up now. Although if we get them out of Africa without opening up a second front It will release a lot of his Airforce to Bomb us, but that will be after they have recuperated their losses in Egypt which have been tremendous. Of course their powers of recuperation will be getting less & less now.
I am still as busy as hell now still I am enjoying the Course. It is the barrack life that is so upsetting I get awfully depressed if I stick around too much. I can understand Chaps continually going on the beer & getting hectic when They get away from their Camp, and those chaps going mad when they come off the Submarines.
By the way have you heard anything from Grandad? Did you write him about those coupons. Oh. would you send to Ipswich? or oblige me if you
[page break]
dont want to send from there as I have had a letter Again & I cant do anything myself for a fortnight anyway. Well I must close now & turn into my little narrow bed. so Good night darling. I wish I were actually saying that dont you?.
[underlined] Tuesday [/underlined],
Many thanks for your letter to [indecipherable word] this morning you certainly seem to be on the spending grade. It is terrific what they do take isnt it. I will most certainly see if I can get him Some wellingtons this week end in Cardiff
At the moment I have got a Reall [sic] thick head. I dont know where I have picked it up. I have neither been very hot or very cold. Well my love Ill Close now with all my love for you and the boys.

Tons of love
Your Ian
p.s. I have sent off that form to Fred Craddock. [indecipherable word].
