A THOUGHT FOR THE QUIET HOUR
by PATIENCE STRONG
[picture]
HYMN FOR THE R.A.F.
Lord, hold them in thy mighty hand
Above the ocean and the land.
Like wings of eagles mounting high
Along the pathways of the sky.
Immortal is the name they bear.
And high the honour that they share.
Until a thousand years have rolled
Their deeds of valour shall be told.
In dark of night and light of day.
God speed and bless them on their way.
And homeward safely guide each one
With glory gained and duty done.
Patience Strong.

My Dearest Mrs Wareing,
I meant to have written you at once on receiving that later news of Mr Wareing which you so kindly sent us per Mrs Sonter but I have had a number of visitors & have been away myself for a few days, that things got a bit dislocated. We are so very glad that you were able to get that letter from the F/O who was in hospital with Mr Wareing. There is something especially comforting to have news first hand like that, from one who had actually been with him & the letter was definitely very re-assuring, & it must have been a great joy to you. I wish Mr Wareing could have got back to Eng with the officer who wrote you but that would have meant that he was more seriously hurt wouldn’t it. I do hope more good news will come to you soon, or better still that Mr Wareing comes himself. That would be the most thrilling of all joys wouldn’t it.
Mrs Sonter wasn’t out last Sun: eve: so I haven’t heard any late news of her boy. Trust he is fit & well. I trust you are keeping well too my dear. You have been a very brave little lady. These are anxious & hard days for youth & our fine young manhood for those groups face this terrible [indecipherable word] & we suffer vicariously for our friends. Please excuse this short note, but we wanted you to know we [indecipherable word] with you over the reassuring news. All the Best & lots of love
