My Dear Mother & Dad,
I am writing this letter prior to having a bath & a shave as I have only just got up, being on duty last night.
I am pleased to tell you that I & the boys are all well & I expect the majority of us will find our way to town tonight.
I have very little news. The leave situation is unchanged & the date is getting nearer so I feel almost certain it will hold good.
Yesterday was a very lovely Spring day & things did really look good round &

about. Today I think is warmer, but more windy & I am writing this letter to you out of doors.
I had a reply from Lloyds Bank today saying they had received the Opening Account Form from me & would forward a cheque book as soon as they heard from Air Ministry, & at the same time would inform me of my credit. I wish A/M would exert themselves. This is a silly situation to be in.
I hope you are both keeping well & I will bid you au-revoir for now.
All my love & best wishes.
Douglas
