Dear Mum,
Here we are again. Your letters have been coming along nicely – averaging 3 to 4 weeks in transit. Still getting some of Januarys via Canada. The latest was one of those & seeing as it had most news in it I’ll answer it. I’ll bet you’re all pleased with the wool price, it’s about the best price we’ve ever got isn’t it. Beryl’s long letter by sea mail hasn’t arrived yet but shouldn’t be long because I got one from Betty a couple of days ago written early in January. It was a long one too, but the best part was a photo of her that Joy took on Maroubra beach & it was a beauty.
So Meggs is getting into big time cricket again eh. Wish I could. Haven’t had any sport here at A.F.U. They play hockey but our day off a week generally isn’t on Sat. so we work. Was to play football yesterday but spent the day in bed as I’d been flying all night before. I suppose none of you saw Max at Xmas – did he write? I must write to him someday if I can rake up an address of some sort. I think I have his & G.R.’s someplace. Love to all at home. Bert XXXX
