Dear Mum,
Once again there isn’t much to write of but I must keep sending them along We’re in the middle of a real bit of summer for a change. Both yesterday & to-day there’s hardly been a cloud in the sky & it’s quite warm. Most of the waafs [sic] are without their tunics & we take ours off for some of the lectures. I’m thinking of riding down [deleted] [indecipherable letters] [/deleted] to the baths to-night for a swim. It’s only 9 miles. Most of the chaps who’ve been with me since landing here are split up now. Theres [sic] only 5 here now. Quite a lot are in the same group but at different con-units. There [sic] fairly close however & we sometimes meet in town. Bert Howard was over a couple of days ago to see the dentist. He’s had trouble with his wisdom teeth. Took two & 1/2 hours to have one out at Evans Head & they started on the second one about 3 weeks ago but they can’t get it out. He’s having a pretty tough time of it. Reckons every time he goes the dentist manages to make it bleed & that’s all. Have you had any more pet lambs by the time you get this? Cheerio for now. Love to all
Bert XXXX
