LA COTE D’AZUR
1085 GOURDON et le Chemin du Paradis
Am just finishing off packing & been in hectic rush all day. No time for letter. Got yrs. of 18th today. Am leaving Marseille 1700 hrs. & get to Paris 0820 tomorrow morning, so address letters to 87 Group, RAF, B.A.O.R. France same as before. We got boat ready yesterday, & as we stepped mast, it snapped like a carrot, so could only go out in a dish bottomed abortion. Marvellously hot here today, roses out & everything. Broad beans in bloom, & all the peach orchards, masses of [indecipherable word]
Love
Hubby
