Datum: 15th August 1943.
I have signed two forms one increasing my RAF allotment to you to the maximum possible dating from 31/5/[underlined] 42 [/underlined] & the other requesting that my remaining available credit in my RAF a/c be paid to you. It may be months before you receive anything but you should [inserted] eventually [/inserted] have our entire fortune in your hands just in case you do manage to get a home or furniture. In case of need ask the P.O. if you may broach our joint a/c – to do which you have my full sanction. The weather here is atrocious – eternal wind, gloom & such rain [censored words] I wonder if you’ve had that holiday yet. Hope you & daughter are well
Love to both
John.
