Dear Folks,
Thanks for A.Gs of 16th from Mum, & 20th from Yvonne. Roy Hussey must be doing very well. Its the first I’ve heard of him since I’ve been out here. Don back on ops too. It seems no time at all since he was at Weyburn. Well Yvonne seems to be going for the boys or vice-versa, I suppose she’s grown a bit since I left. It’s about time you really decided what you’re going to do Yvonne. I don’t think you could stick [deleted] it [/deleted] [inserted] nursing [/inserted], Yvonne. Pete Lamb’s sister is learning to be a nurse, & she has to start on the same job as Marjorie Coram did at Southmead & apparently she’s not jumping for joy over it. I should think a children’s nurse has to be trained too & very patient.
Another Ld I.T.W. pal has turned up here now. Jock Brown. He’s very fit & has heard from my pals who were trained in Texas & Florida. Andy, Alan Harris, etc. Apparently they had a wonderful time. Still it can’t be helped. It’s our day off to-day & a friend & myself have just been to a farm next door to the camp & got their two farm horses. We had to ride them bareback, but I had some old trousers on, & it was very pleasant. I’m a bit sore though. It’s queer to hear of all the lads as P/Os or Sgts. I can’t get used to seeing them turn up with wings & stripes, after being rather green AC2s when I last saw them.
Well, I think I shall go to church this evening & then get back to work to-morrow. I’m not working overhard, & regret to state that I’m well at the bottom of all the exam results so far. We should have had a leave. Much love
Terry
WE PASSED ANYWAY.
