Dear Folks,
I’ve at last received your long letter addressed to Weyburn. It was very interesting. Also you’re A.G. of 7th in which you quote Basil’s. I thought that sciving [sic] bloke down the road couldn’t have earned his wings, & I hope he gets a good kick in the pants. He needs it.
We had a week-end off last week & five of us hired bikes & cycled to a beach on the North Shore. I managed to gather up some civvies & was thus able to get out of uniform for a while. Unfortunately the weather was rotten, but it cleared up Sunday, so we set out then, just for the day & had a very nice time. It started pelting down in the afternoon though, & we got completely soaked. Still it was good fun.
Work is going fairly well, although its pretty intense, but we get a fair amount of free time so I can’t grumble. Did I tell you I got a letter from Uncle Claude inviting me to go down there if I get a chance.
I’ve tried to get that powder cream for you, Mum, but they don’t seem to have heard of it over here. I showed them the letter, so there could be no mistake, but it was still no good, I’m afraid.
There isn’t any more to write about. I’m sorry Yvonne’s been so poorly & hope she finally makes up her mind what she wants. Much love Terry
