Sunday – 6 pm.
My Dear Mother & Dad,
There isn’t much news!!! really since I wrote to you last, so I am just sending a short note to tell you that I am keeping well & that the boys are O.K.
I have only just got up & I find it difficult adjusting myself to the time of day, I keep thinking it is morning, it feels quite strange. As you probably realise I have not been to town for some days so that I have nothing to report in the way of films seen etc. No, life has been hum drum!!!
[page break]
Nevertheless we get along & the boys all like my young Rooster. He’s a grand fellow really & doesn’t appear to mind service life, in fact I often wonder if he realises what it is all about. I am so glad I adopted him.
This is a worse effort than the letters of chatty conservation I used to have to write from Evauline so I think I had better say au-revoir.
I do hope that you are both keeping fit & in good spirits & I send all my love & best wishes as at all times past. – Just over a week for leave.
Douglas.
