[Two words missing]
Many thanks for your letter today. The post seems all to cock because you should have had my letter by the time you wrote to me. I am sorry about that note but I hadnt [sic] heard a word from you and I had written twice as well as the Card from Lincoln.
I do wish you would not worry about flying. What flying I do is negligible & at the present Rate of things I shall not be doing any serious flying by this time next year.
The Squadron leader who was my skipper has today been posted and that means our crew are at a loose end again As I did not like the chap I am pleased but as far as flying is concerned it will mean more delays. Still if John got back to the original Skipper +/0 Stammers I shall be [corrected] quite [/corrected] happy as he is reckoned to [deleted] By [/deleted] be the best pilot on the Station
I bet poor Sqd [sic] [corrected] Rist [/corrected] felt Rotten when he went back let me have his address & I will write to him. You must occasionally see Mr Turner, because he has always been decent to you
Yester [missing] d [/missing]ay I received a letter from Rex who tells me that he has heard that the Lawyer has now died on us so that is going to delay things again. He was going to Wyrley this weekend I think anyway I can’t get away now I must try to get over there during my January leave. There is plenty of time for that though yet
Tomorrow is Pay day. & am already I am broke I dont [sic] know how much I have to come but I hope it is Plenty. Have you received that extra 17/6 yet?? If not let me know. I will send you that £1 too.
Well dearest I must close now but I am missing you like hell tonight
All my love,
[underlined] your [/underlined] [missing word]
