Dear Mum,
Well here we are. Just a short note to keep you going while I’m on leave. We finished our flying here the night before last just on time. We didn’t do too badly I think & we were unlucky we finished as late as we did, because we got about 10 hours more than usual with the aircraft going unserviceable as soon as we’d been flying in them for a while & we’d have to land & start all over again some other time. Anyway we got just a week’s leave. [deleted] I [/deleted] I’m going to Scotland first & will probably join the others in London in 3 or 4 days time. Most of the others are going there first except Ray & Don who are going to Rugby & Birmingham (Don calls it ‘Brum) respectively.
Had a letter from you to-day & 2 from Betty. Nice of old Cyril Hose to remember me. I remember him quite well as he was one of the Big Boys when I first went there. Congratulations to Jack & his wife. Glad you had a drop of rain to freshen things up for the week-end.
Cheerio for now Mum – excuse the scribble.
Love to all at home. Bert XXXX.
