Dear Mother, & Dad,

Am pleased to say that I arrived OK yesterday & of course, I could have had another day at home ’cos [sic] no one knew that I was coming.

Well this place is terrible I am living in tents, there are 35 of us here & it seems that the Camp has only been made a fortnight & you can guess what it is like no shops for miles right out in the Highlands that’s why I am using part of my exercise books to write letters we cant get any writing paper, well I shall probably be home again within a month that’s all the course is. So all the best for now, Keep Well love to all,

Your loving Son
