Letter No. 6.
Friday. 1. pm
My Dear Mother & Dad,
Just a short line to let you know that I and the boys are O.K. I have only just had lunch, I did not get up until nearly mid-day as I had been on ‘duty’ the previous morning, or should I say night & morning.
I sent my parcel of laundry registered a few minutes ago & I was very pleased to receive the ‘cleans’ yesterday with cigarettes. Thank you so very much.
I received a letter card from E.W.F. this lunch time. His present address is:- Section Leader Fatham E. W 313425., Fire Station 19.17 – 15
[page break]
Salisbury Road. Plymouth. He doesn’t say what he is doing there however.
Rooster is keeping fit & I take him with me when I go on duty. The exercise seems to do him good.
I don’t think there is anything else to report just now. I hope the invalids next door will soon recover.
Keep smiling & of good cheer. All my love & best wishes as ever.
Douglas
