Managed to “bale out” before plane crashed in flames and am safe and well. Shall be moving to permanent camp soon – please ask Ursula not to send anything yet – until I write from there. Hope you continue to make good progress – give my love to all and at Dundee. Treatment, food and accommodation good so far. Long may it continue.
Fondest love,
John.
