Dearly Beloved.
I hav’nt [sic] heard from you for quite a while darling, but, I expect I'll hear.
[page break]

before very long. I wrote you an ordinary letter yesterday, so this one might reach you before that one does. I have explained about the address in that one. Well darling I'm afraid I hav’nt [sic] very good news for you. There’s no sign of us [deleted] bef [/deleted] being posted from here. We might be here over a month as far as I can see. They’re sending chaps on leave from here now. I think I told you in a previous letter not to write to me over here again, I think you can disregard that. I could’nt [sic] stay here very long without hearing from you darling, as it is the only link between us. I mean communication of course. There’s another link between us though that will never break darling you know what that is. We do nothing here all day, exept [sic] parade twice a day. I just sit on my bed all day thinking of you darling. the lovely times we used to spend together, and the lovely times we’ll spent together again, when I come back to you. It shan’t [sic] be too long now. I wish this war would finish soon though, so that we can be together always darling. That’s all I'm looking forward to right now. I wish you could be near me now darling. I feel so lonely without you. I miss you terribly. I have met two of my school mates out here. I introduced you to one of them in Ludlow outside the camp
[page break]

Remember? Well darling I'll have to close now I'll write again soon. Keep on waiting patiently wo’nt [sic] you darling? Think of me sometimes and love me always. Remember me to mam and daden [sic] and all the other folks
Your darling husband (to be)
Dave.
