Letter from Donald Baker to his mother

Description

Reports arrival of seven letters which took just over a month to arrive. Hopes she had recovered from illness. Commiserates over loss of friend and mentions how lucky he was. Mentions other Rhodesian arriving and that he had stopped playing rugby. Would start cricket when some balls arrived which like all sports equipment took some time to arrive. Mentions monotonous diet but they keep healthy so do not notice. Contemplates when war will end.
