Dear Jessie

I am afraid I haven’t much to tell you yet other than to say I got back here about half past eleven. I had to wait until half past seven for a bus and then had to run down the High Street. This afternoon we started to learn semaphore signalling. You know how the sailors do with two flags.

Mountstephen has had his Radio rental transferred so we have got a wireless here now. Hildegard is just singing “The Natural Thing to Do”. This boy and girl song reminds [inserted] me [/inserted] of us.

I feel a bit blue tonight, miss you so much, but hope to see you again soon and have another wonderful week-end. Love to you and all and give Pam a goodnight kiss for me.

Always your adoring husband
Harry. Xxxxx
