My Dear Douglas

We are all very happy. [censored] few words [/censored] from Mother that you are safe & well & we are now looking forward to still more news of you.

This is Sunday evening we have just had tea. Mary is knitting. Bernard is reading the paper & Kenneth has gone to Chapel.

He is in the choir now so feels quite important am pleased to say that Kenneth got his School Certificate with 3 distinctions & 5 credits.

He started work on the 11th Nov at Lloyds Bank in Leeds & brought his first wage home on Friday. They have given him 1£ [sic] weekly to commence with so we think it not too bad.

[page break]

I wonder if you know that John is in the Air Force.

He joined up in August & has been at [censored] one/two words [/censored] ever since. He has been home about three times

He looks well & has put on weight.

Well Douglas I dont[sic] seem to have much news. I hope this letter complies with regulations & that you will receive it safely.

We all join in sending our very best love to you & will write again soon.

So cheerio for now
Yours affect[sic]
Auntie Gladys
