[underlined] Letter No. 17 [/underlined]
Tuesday. 6. pm.
My Dear Mother & Dad,
I am sorry I have been a little behind hand with my letter writing, but really it is quite understandable. I was on duty all Sunday night & Monday night & therefore sleeping on Monday & Tuesday daylight hours. I certainly have spent a wizard Easter in the moonlight.
Apart from feeling tired all the boys are keeping well & Rooster sends his love.
I received your letter this evening enclosing the one from Mrs. Clayton which I am returning straight away. I am surprised, very much so, but I refrain from commenting, it is none of my business. Regarding the
[page break]
income tax form you mentioned, will you return it because I have to fill it in, if I wish to get post war credits!
When I have written this letter I shall draft a short one to Alice & then I am going to try & change my billet. I am hoping to move over to Jack into a single room. By the way you will notice that this is letter [underlined] 17. [/underlined] Best to keep them numbered don’t you think?
I expect that Jack Ham. & I shall visit the local after dinner tonight. ‘Bye for now, hope you are both keeping well & hoping very strongly that April 26th will hold good. All my love & best wishes.
Douglas.
