22. January 1943.

My Dearest,
Many thanks for your letters of [deleted] last [/deleted] yesterday & today. It is distressing to hear about David again, but please wire me if he gets much worse. I dont [sic] like asking for time off but my boys & you come first in cases like this
We are certainly having a rough time of it lately with Drs & what not.

I am feeling terribly fed up too I could do with a real good holiday again. The weather at the moment is enough to give any body the gripes apart from anything else. Nearly everybody has gone out of camp tonight & it is pouring with rain. This place is no health resort at the best of times so you can imagine what it is like now

A few nights ago I was in Lincoln & went to the pictures to see “BAMBI” It is a beautiful film but it is not a film for very young kids The picture was almost stolen by the rabbit “Thumper”.

Well my love I must close now. I do hope darling that David is soon better for your sake.
I do wish I were with you
All my love
& keep your Pecker up
Yours Ever
