Dear Mum,
Was glad to get another letter a couple of days ago. But better still the first parcel turned up on Saturday. Thanks ever so much for the cake & handkerchiefs. The cake is very nice but a little dry – not enough to detract from its tastiness however. I still have some left. I figured when I got it all the rest of the fellers would be in for their cut but it seems nearly all of them got cakes at the same time – Peter & Syd my pilot & bomb aimer both got one & Peter has another one to-night so we’re set for quite a while. Had a letter from May on Sat. too. Pages 2 & 3 but not p.1. Anyway each page was pretty well self sufficient & no harm done. I guess it’ll turn up soon.
Malcom from the Bank is going for aircrew is he? Glad you had a letter from Mr Ritchie. No I’m afraid I haven’t written, but Rex Leton was the only one of us with his address & I’ve written asking him for it but no joy as yet. I will write though. Sorry to hear about Ron & Joyce – it’ll be a bad blow to Ron I reckon.
Cheerio for now – Love to all at home. Bert XXXX
