Dearest
Many thanks for your note to hand this morning. I am glad to hear that you have written the WSG people.
I expect I will get your other letter tomorrow giving me the dope on What I asked.
I am afraid also I cant [sic] stop now to write much dear [corrected] because [/corrected] I am going on an X country trip this afternoon & I have dash off any time now.
On Sunday, I was listening to the 1.o clock news and passing over Skiddaw. It looked grand. I shall be glad when we can have our trips there again.
I was over there again on Monday night

[page break]

but we were above the clouds & couldnt [sic] see a thing.
It is marvellous above the clouds in the moon light.
Yesterday we were “dive bombing” Doncaster & Gainsborough. It was good to see the folks gaping up at us I would hate to be a crowd of Germans when we go down at em. [sic]
The other day we were hedge hopping & scared a horse pulling a plough which bolted [corrected] across [/corrected] the field left the ploughman on his backside. I bet he wouldnt [sic] be pleased.
Oh please dont [sic] send any parcel to here at Xmas because we have Exclent [sic] Xmas fare in camp.
Roll on the 5th,
All my love,
Ever Your,
Ian
