My Darling
Just a little note to let you know I have written to the G.A. & returned them receipt Well one more trip done. We went to ST Nazaire on Monday it was a good trip & we got a good photo again. Scarcely any opposition at all. Just how I like it.

Did I write you yesterday I think I did? If I did I [smudged] probably [/smudged] told you that we had been to ST Nazaire anyway. Time is so funny I am damned if I know what day it is at all now. Still Ill [sic] start this & leave it open in case you write tomorrow
I only know that my leave

[page break]

seems to be a hell of a while coming round this time. I seem to have been back on duty ages this time. Gosh & I do miss you so. More after each leave than before I think. It is nearly six years since the great day (or night) & when we got married. I thought that after 15 years of digs I would at last settle in my own home. And out of that six years all we have had was about 2 yrs [years] I am getting browned off with it I shall be bloody glad when the whole show is finished.

My Boys too. I am missing all there [sic] little devilments. Still when one thinks of Harold Ashton, & Bert Burgess I suppose I have a [corrected] hell [/corrected] of a lot to be thankful for too.
Well my dear I must close now & get some shut eye
Good night darling. X X
