I had 3 Cig parcels today – 200 Dunhill (Row Cowdry, I think) & 2 parcels of 150 Rothmans which appear to be gifts from the firm but my name was supplied by Ba & by a Miss Rita Susman – at least that is Rothmans story I fancy that Ba & the other lady had a bit more to do with it than merely hand in my name. Will you please give all 3 my warmest thanks for such timely birthday gifts. The concert which I told you about earlier was marvellous I went three times! Each show is given 5 times to enable the whole camp to attend & I scrounged the extra tickets. I had more pleasure from each performance than any other show of concert to date. I had a game of rugger today & scored an absolutely wizard try! (Although I shouldn’t say so) I’ll be 31 tomorrow – what an age! Love to you both
