Dear Dad,
Sorry to hear you have not been too well lately. I’ve had a few crook days too. Had a sore on my finger poisoned & my whole arm & shoulder was stiff for a week particularly at night but its O.K. now.
Bought myself a bicycle a couple of days ago & its very handy. Most of the stations here are well dispersed & to do a normal days lectures might easily mean a mile of two walk; whereas the bike also saves time and is good for going into the village some nights. I’ve never seen so many bikes in my life as there are here. Nearly everyone has them & the demand among the newcomers is terrific. I got mine, reconditioned from a garage for £5 which isn’t too bad. It’s as good as new & when we leave I [deleted] cert [/deleted] reckon I can sell it for about the same if I want to.
Have about finished ground school here now & will be starting flying again in a week or two & then might have a bit more spare time for writing. Cheero [sic] for now
Love to all at home. Bert.
