My Darling
Many thanks for your short note Received to day [sic]. Well I have now not operated for two nights & I dont [sic] think I shall be operating tomorrow either. The last op was Stuttgart. It was quite good too. We have had about six new crews in so that should relieve the pressure a bit anyway
I have one disappointment for you & that is my leave has been put back into April [corrected] about [/corrected] the 9th I think.
I have heard from Rex again. He told me that he had been to Gt Wyrley & had been chasing the Lawyers. Apparently there is some hitch with the Inland Revenue people, They apparently want some more duties.

Poor old Bert is still getting trouble isnt [sic] he [deleted] re [/deleted]
I feel terribly fed up at times. That is one reason why I dont [sic] mind a lot of “ops” because the time just flies & one has no time to reflect. At times like this one at least I get awfully homesick.
Last night our crew went to Lincoln, The Skipper has his wife & daughter up for 3 days and I met them last night I felt miserable after wards though I wished you were here.
Still by my next leave should have finished my tour of ops & we can do something then to celebrate
If I can I shall get my

11 remaining trips in about 20 days then I shall come on leave then. What will happen afterwards I dont [sic] know. Where they will send me God knows. I think I might try to get transferred to Ferry Command. I dont [sic] fancy instructing anyway
I am pleased the boys are keeping well. It seems funny to have you talking about Davids [sic] School Clothes. Also I hope you have not been too upset by having your tooth out as you say you are doing tomorrow
Well my love Ill close now & see what is for supper
All my Love
Always yours
