Dear Mum,
Very pleased about the way your letters are arriving. I’m getting a double ration now; the older ones addressed to Canada are coming along with those of a month later sent direct. The parcel hasn’t arrived yet but I guess there’s still plenty of time.
I doubt if I ever mentioned it before but there [sic] a bloke here with us, whom I met at Parkes, from Tooraweenah – the Mtn. View Pub I think. His name if Goodfellow, generally known as “Bushy”, so we have a bit in common to yarn about.
Seems you’ve had quite a time for your holiday; how’s Manly these days. Gosh would I like to go back for a while & laze around in the sun with never a thought about trying to keep warm.
This is Sat morning & I’m finishing this off in our pub in town, as it is our days leave to-day. The weather this morning is lovely – not a cloud in the sky. It’s really amazing because yesterday evening it was direct from the North Pole.
Well Mum, cheerio for the present,
Love to all at home. Bert XXXX
