My Dearest Darling,
I received your cable yesterday darling. I was very glad to receive it. Even though it was only a few words, it made me feel much happier. Well darling nothing very exiting has happened since I wrote last. I’m still waiting for my 20 hour test. I expect I'll get in the next few days though. It is getting near my turn now. There is so many of us that it takes our flight commander a long time to test us all.
I went to town this afternoon and I bought you a birthday present. It should be on ils [sic] way by now. The shopkeeper is sending it on for me. Do not be surprised if you do not get a note with it. We are forbidden to enclose correspondence in parcels. So I’ll wish you a very happy birthday, hoping I shall be with you for your next. I hope you will like the present darling. [deleted] The [/deleted] It was the best I could get in a small town like this.
Well darling we are still as busy as ever. We have plenty to do. There’s only a couple of weeks before our final ground subjects examinations start. We should be out of here too, before eight weeks is up. There’s only one course after this that will take 16 weeks I think.
Well darling I hav’nt [sic] any more news this time.
Remember me to everybody. I still love you as much as ever darling. Hoping the day we shall be together again will come soon. So for the present darling keep on loving me, and think of me sometimes.

Your darling
