[underlined] No. 10. [/underlined]

I wrote to the Unit about the £5.10.0. you said you’d left in your locker, & had a reply to say only £3 had been found & credited to you. The officer in charge is very perturbed & asks you to confirm the amount and describe exactly where you left it. By the time he gets a reply via me from you it will be a bit late to institute inquiries - but still!

I’m pining for a letter from you, haven’t heard for three weeks. I hope we get your p.o.w. number soon so that we can start sending books etc.

All flourishing this end & thinking of you constantly. All my love,

Ursula.
Vera Boweck’s son born last Sunday!
