Dear Folks,
Thanks for nice A.G from Fishy Moira also on 22nd May, & one from Dad 16th & one from Auntie Lot, for which I truly thank you. Also received a letter from Mr & Mrs Coram. They get through much quicker here. Glad to hear that everyone is getting on with their courses & interested to hear Wilson is in F.A.A. Fancy old John being a survivor. The lads are certainly seeing life anyway. I shall be interested to get all the gen. I’d like to know if Brittain [sic] is wearing pilots wings. If he is I’d like to know how the dickens he got them so soon. There’s a very strict penalty for wearing unauthorised flying badges. So Yvonne’s going to work at Staplehill eh! Should be very pleasant. Looking forward to seeing Binky, & also Fishy in her jodpurs [sic] I went to a very pleasant dance at a chit on Thursday. Peter & I had a small quota of drinks in the Mess – then turned up there – I had a very good time. Also seen a couple of good films. I’m getting down to work now as we have mid-term exams next week. Once again the same old thing. We are supposed to do 2 hours work every night & I haven’t started yet so now I’m getting down to it. I don’t know if I’ve told you but I’ve been regularly in touch with John Fisher & he is coming here in 8 weeks. He is at Pensacola now, & having a very good time. This course is certainly pretty complicated & we are getting through mounds of work & flying quite often, but I’m not overworking myself. Love to all. Terry
