NUMBER 46
Kriegsgefangenenlager
Datum: 28-1-43.
Still anxiously awaiting mail from you, practically a month having elapsed since your last arrived. I believe your Sept parcel in in the camp but, if so, it won’t reach me for a day or two. Just now I’m often thinking back a year when we last lived together, those days are grand to look back upon although they had their uncomfortable moments, didn’t they? How Frances must have changed since then. I often think of Norman, too & the time I spent with him at I.O.M. How much luckier am I than he, still to be alive & able to look forward to reunion with my beloved wife! I hope you are well, dearest. I’m dying for a letter from you with news of yourself & Frances I’m sure I’m missing a lot of joy from her. We jog along here, as usual. Love John
