Dear Folks,
Well this course is now finished & I’m coming home. I was chosen to go home, then altered to complete my training out here, in which case I should have got a leave, & finally [inserted] altered [/inserted] to back to home again. Unfortunately we get no leave. So it means that I shan’t be able to see the States after all. Pete is going down South. He gets leave then travels all the way south & has two weeks in Florida. Lucky dog! Well anyway I can certainly say I’ve seen some extremes of temperature & it’ll be very nice to see you all again. I had a very nice letter from Mr. Chambers & also Mrs Coram, & 2 A.G’s from you. Pity, about Moira, but it can’t be helped. Its funny the way things turn out. We decided where we were going by the spin of a coin. It would have been nice to stay out here just a bit longer, as the pay is wonderfully good, & I could have bought a lot of stuff home, but at the moment, kitting myself out has made rather a hole in the funds. Another friend I’ve made here, is staying to complete his training John Cox flopped in one of his exams, so I don’t know what he’ll be doing exactly.
All for now
Much love
Terry
