Dear Spike
I received your letter about about [sic] ten minutes ago my Aunt sent it on to me, its a bit late to send a telegram now as you said you would be on leave actually I have only been in England about ten days and am only beginning to get my land legs after a very nice trip taking three whole months. I spent a week at Brighton and have been moved up here to be crewed up, small things as a refresher course or an O.T.U. don’t count here. I have crewed up with an Australian crew and will be moving over to 466 within the next ten days; like you I am a mid-upper and don’t mind it in the slightest, by the way Lance Kemp is with me over here also Laurie Shultry. I won’t tell you any more of the news until I see you, the nearest town here is York if you happen to be near it anytime let me know & I will meet you there. Well Spike old Boy! I will be expecting to hear from you as soon as you get back off leave and maybe able to meet [inserted] you [/inserted] somewhere, I have not had any leave yet & from rumours I don’t think we will get any.
Your old pal
Jim.
