My Darling,
Many thanks for your letter to hand today. I intended to write you yesterday but we were flying (went to ST Mazaire last night) The weather up here was foggy last night so we returned to Pershore in Worcester alive. It caused a mild panic when 16 Lancasters landed there too
Adverting to that additional 19/= you are already getting 17/6 & if the WSG people can
[page break]
tell the A.M. how to get that 1/6 a week your welcome.
I am going to try to get to Skeg [Skegness] on my next day off to see Bert No one seems to know where this Higher Pollin [sic] is
I am pleased to hear that D & T are reasonably well but it is unfortunate about Pauline.
Well love this is all my paper so I must close
All my Love
yours always
Ian.
