Dear Mum,
Sorry I’ve let it go over the week before writing. I don’t know why really; we haven’t been doing very much in the way of flying this past week. But then again there is so little to write about that I don’t seem to feel like it much. Every now & then of course I realise that I should write just to have something in the mailbox at Springfield even if there is no news. Thats [sic] how this is – remarkable lack of news so far isn’t there.
Got Beryl’s long letter last week but apart from that it [deleted] [indecipherable letter] [/deleted] was the leanest week I’ve had in England. None from Betty & no airgraph from home. Not even a letter from Terry. I’ve had some snaps developed & will write a couple of sea mails later in the week enclosing some to you & Betty. They might not seem very interesting to you without the fitting circumstances but we’ll fix that some day. Will write to Beryl as a birthday effort next time, should be time enough.
Lots of love to all at home. Bert XXXX
