Wickenby,
Lincoln.
26th Feb 1943
My Dearest,
Just a line or two in haste. I have only just recently got up. We went to Nuremburgh last night, and it was a long eventful trip (for which we were really duly thankful) except one of our engines went unservicable [sic] just as we were leaving Germany & we came back quite comfortably on 3 engines. It is very comforting to know that if anything happens to 1 engine you can still cope. It was quite a minor defect & can be remedied in ½ hr or so.
You were slightly out about [undecipherable] but I did it last night in school
Also you will be pleased to here [sic] that I have been placed in charge of all the other Flight Engineers on the Station This is one step [underlined] nearer [/underlined]
Poor old Tony! He is a love of course David is older & has other interests now, and yet he doesnt [sic] understand.
Well my love, this is about the lot for now so Ill close with all my love for you & the Boys. I am missing you darling.
Yours always
Ian.
