Dearest
I thought there would have been a note from you this morning. Still I suppose that it will be here tomorrow.
When I wrote on Sat or was it Friday I was waiting to know if I was going on a course to Derby. Well I am still waiting.
We went to Kiel last night. It was disappointing from our point of View because low clouds obscured the Target. It was a very heavy raid & I dont [sic] doubt it will be found that heavy damage was done.
I am putting in my "PRO FORMA" (formal leave application) today, so it looks as though we might get it this time

[page break]

The weather here at the moment is the cats wiskers [sic]. I hope it continues for my leave period too, then that should be wizard.
Well my dear I am a bit Sleepy so I will close now with all My Love for you & The boys.
Always Yours
Ian
