Dear Mum, Dad, Yvonne & Moira,
Received your A.G. Of 2nd. Surprised to hear Yvonne has left the farm. After having gone right through the winter too.

I've just come [inserted] down [/inserted] from a flip. I'm doing the same as Denis did here, although as he knew more about it, we have a longer course then he. It's very hard work & we all feel pretty tired but I think it's worth it. It's nice to have Pete Lamb with me again. He's just a [sic] mad as ever. We went to see “In which we Serve” in town a couple of nights ago. It really is a wizard film, and well worth seeing. I had a letter from Denis. I was very surprised to hear he was in B.C. I thought he was home. This island is a very nice place. It's quite hot now & the fields are green & on our day off, which we get every week, we laze around in the open. I went to church last Sunday. First time I've been able to do so for some time. What happened about Moira's scholarship. I've never heard whether she has heard yet, or what she is going to do. I suppose both she & Yvonne will be more grown up [inserted] when I get home.[/inserted] You'll still be a young as ever though Mum. (If I can get some Hiltons). He he! Do you still do fire watching, Dad. Once again I've come to the end of the news folks, so Cheerio. Much love to all. Terry
