My Darling,
Many thanks for your note of a long while ago. What has happened I was looking forward to one on Monday or yesterday. [sic]
Well in the first six nights back here I was on 4 Raids. Nuremburgh [sic]! Cologne! St Nazaire, and BERLIN. All were highly Successful The [sic] Berlin one espesially [sic]. That Rate of operating is far too quick. It is extremely tiring. I have had a return of my catarrh too.

I have really been too busy to get too browned off at being back here but now I have had a moments [sic] respite. The realities has set in & I do feel really miserable & I missed you terribly last night dear.

Up to the present I have not heard any more about my Commission I do wish they would hurry up about it
Niether [sic] of the Boys or Pauline have developed measles have they? I hope not anyway.
Well my love I love you so much & do wish you were nearer but I must close now darling

All my love
Yours always
Ian
