Your letters 1,2,3,5 safely arrived. Glad to hear of Irene’s promotion & engagement but have not had details from Barnet yet. Let me know if you have any trouble in getting all my personal kit. I’ll send a separate request to RAF if necessary. Please don’t cut your own hair. Hope Frank turns up here as P.O.W. Am going to play soccer tomorrow if I feel strong enough Glad to hear of Frances’ progress Send lots of photos – old ones as well as new.. Hope finances work out well. Let me know how you fare in that respect. All my love. Darling, John
