Dear Mum,
Awfully glad to hear about the beaut drop of rain. Should make all the difference. Am just back in camp after a week’s leave in London. Had a great time there too. We’d heard that it was terribly expensive but didn’t find it so. Stayed at a serviceman’s club for 17/6 & got four lots of free tickets to threatres [sic] etc from there & the Boomerang Club. The seats to the stage threatres [sic] were all worth about 16/- so that was a great saving. Went out to Taplow & saw Margaret Vyner & her mother again. Had a couple of tours over some of the old places in London; the Tower, Abbey, St Pauls & the Art Gallery. On our last night decided to go highbrow & dined at the Savoy. Towards the end of the evening the managing director of Lysaght (Aust). invited us over & insisted on paying the bill. He gave us a really wonderful night indeed. We’re now in what’s said to be the “crack” Bomber Group in England & will probably go to an Aussie squadron in about 2 months. Congrats to Mr & Mrs Portland. Cheerio for now.
Love to all at home. Bert.
