Letter from Terry Ford to his father


First part of letter from Terry Ford to his father, comments on Fishy taking up music again, playing table tennis. Thinks that Roy Hussey has done well and is pleased that Don is off ops again. That he has paid half his Income Tax, that he went to a dance and went to visit Castle Urquhart on Loch Ness.

So Fishy is taking up music again. I hope she gets [deleted] up [/deleted] on well with it. Table Tennis should be very good on the shelter if it could be placed in the middle of the room. Still, playing like we used to in the League!! We need bags of room.
Roy Hussey has done remarkably well. He must be Bristol’s “ace” I [deleted] must [/deleted] [inserted] should [/inserted] think.
I was very pleased to see that Don is off Ops again. It must have been a big strain on that job. Auntie Cis must be greatly relieved.
I have paid half my income tax, Dad. My money seems to be going pretty well nowadays. It’s a good job my pay is good. We had a wizard Mess dance on Friday. I was with the boys, Ron, Allan & Tony & we didn’t dance at all

We took a trip right along Loch Ness last week & then went walking. We went over Urquhart Castle which is rather famous apparently. The Thane of Cawdor (Macbeth) once commanded it. It wasn’t commercialised thank goodness, it just stood there while we scrambled over it. There were lots of black berries around & the scenery really was wonderful, I’ve never seen anything to compare with it.
Well that’s all for now, I’ll write again. We seem to have been here for ages. It’s probably because we are getting so much flying in.
Love Terry
P.S. hope you get the pub O.K. sooner or later.
