Dear Mum, Dad, Beryl & Bruce,
Just another short note to let you know that all’s well. Am going on leave to-day for a week in the country – at a farm, the guest of Mrs Adams – some coincidence eh? The place is in Buckinghamshire; thats [sic] all I know at present – tell you some more when I get back. Am going with a cobber from Coota – Len Young who also plays hockey & knew Neil Roth well at the Uni at Armidale. Played hockey again last Saturday in the coldest weather yet, but had a great game. Boy was I stiff & sore after the first game not having played Since [sic] leaving Mudgee & being very soft from the inaction of boat & train travelling since leaving Aussie. Had a letter from Terry the other day, hope to visit his camp on leave. Met Alton Robinson & Murray Curtiss from Mudgee here recently too. Maybe will see Taffy Madell & Ron Barton & Jeff Holmes soon. Will close now by wishing you mother dear every happiness & love for your birthday. Love to you all. Bert XXXX.
