Dear Donaldson,
.Just a line to tell you how delighted Ursula & I were to see your name for a bar to the D.S.O. I only wish the opportunity had been mine to put you up for it. You & the Squadron did a marvellous job of work & the award was thoroughly well deserved.
I suppose you aren't quite as busy as you used to be. We are more so as we are on [circled P.] A.F.U. with the same programme as before and a lively E.V.T scheme thrown in.
I don't know if you know this place. It is delightful. Do look us up if you are near.
Give my regards to those I know.
Yours E. Mackay
[inserted to left side of letter]
[indecipherable word] sends his congratulations & is very pleased.
Don't bother to reply. I expect you will have lots of letters to write. [/inserted]
