Dear Folks
Received you’re A.Gs of 11 & 14th. Getting quite a lot of mail now. No they don’t make anything of Whitsun here Mum, no-one seems to have heard of it. I’ve also heard from Jack, & Reg. Poppletone. Both write very interesting stuff. I’ve got my uniform of course, & my greatcoat & second tunic will arrive soon. I’ve had to get a raincoat & a couple of trunks as well. I hope Moira got on better than she thinks in the entrance exam. I see Brittain [sic] got what’s coming to him. Very interested to hear about Don, Dad.
I went for a drive with some friends on Friday night. We went right to the East of the island, & on coming back at 1 o’clock at night we got a puncture. Reminded me of the days with the old Aerial. I eventually got back about 2.30. Well the course is now coming to an end, another 2 1/2 weeks to go, & then we find out what is going to happen to us. I’ve met several of my old I.T.W. friends here now, but I shall be gone before John Fisher arrives. I shan’t be sorry to have finished with courses for a bit. I could do with a rest.
I’m afraid this is a bit disjointed & not very newsy, but there really isn’t much I can talk about.
Please remember me to everyone. Much love
Terry
