Dear Folks,
Received you’re A.G. of 11th. Pretty quick going. Shall be pleased to receive Moira’s. I’ve written a sea letter, enclosing a letter to Mr. & Mrs. Chambers. As I said in that, I received a letter from Uncle Claude, inviting me to go to New York with him if I get the chance. I shall certainly try but I shall probably be coming home soon, & I may not get the chance.
It is now the thirtieth. It was our day off yesterday, but we didn’t do much as the weather wasn’t very pleasant. Pete Lamb, a couple of other blokes & myself went to the local Wild West cinema, where we saw a cowboy film & a serial, & it reminded me very much of the old tuppenny rush at the Vandyck.
We’ve settled down here now, & life is going pretty well, & the course is quite interesting, except that when we are not flying we have to do lectures all day which is pretty boring. I got paid on Friday & received a very goodly sum of dough, which puts me well on top, as there isn’t an awful lot to spend money on here. How is everyone, friends & relatives getting on? Grans & Gramp, Uncles & Aunts, etc. I’m afraid I’m having difficulty in filling this A.G., as there isn’t much news, but I seem to have just about managed it now.
Much love.
Terry
