Dear Folks,
I’ve received a whole batch of A.G’s lately from you & also from Auntie Lot, Reg Popplestone & a letter from Roy dated September which had first been to Wiltshire Rd, Salford. & dated September 1942! I don’t know what his address. Could you send it on to me. You’re A.G’s were 31st Jan 5th. 11th, - 18th of Feb. Thanks for putting the £1 away for me & thanks for the £10. As you know Don has now gone, so I can’t borrow the equivalent from him, which is too bad. Still, I’d be very glad if you would bank it for me, I shall probably need it when I return. I hope Fisho had a nice birthday So you’re going in for horse-riding, eh?
Very glad to hear about the job, Mum. It sounds ideal. Only half day & in the district. Shall be interested to hear more about it.
I’ve just come back from a week-end in Regina. For the last four days we’ve had a terrific blizzard, the worst this winter. Please thank Auntie Lot for her A.G. We have our Wings Ground Exam in a fortnight so I’m rather busy but I’ll write a sea-mail soon. Love, Terry
