Dear Sis,
Thanks a lot for both letters and for sending collars &c. Want to get rid of some LSD. so please find enclosed £8 & hand to mum. Hope she & daddy had a good week-end. Hope Harry’s getting near the end of his trouble. Please thank Ros for letter. Will be writing there soon.
You seem to have been having similar weather to us. Fog today. Its going to hold us up a lot. I shall be glad to have finished training. And of course when I do leave here I shall be [deleted] comi [/deleted] in a better position for getting home in more ways than one. I’ve about 1 chance in 10 of getting some really comfortable billets (good enough for a Squadron Leader) when I move!!! But I shan’t push for it as it wouldn’t be fair to you.
By the way we passed Mrs. Roosevelt’s car in Oxford the other day
[page break]
Well I think I’ve told Nipper all I have to tell. I’ll be sending you some more group photos. soon. The boys tried to get some done in Oxford on Monday but everybody seems to be booked up.
Will you be sending pyjamas soon. Not that I mind but you’ll be saying these stink!
Love
Bill
P.S. Rubber Shortage.
Can you do anything
