Hello Joan Darling, It now seems ages since I last saw you & it will be like heaven when we are together again. During my spare time, & I now have plenty, I often think of the happiness we always had. I’m certainly lucky to have such a loveable & loving wife. It would probably be a good idea, when the war is finished, to have a holiday at Windermere, where we started life together. I wonder how the policeman, to whom we gave a “lift”, is getting on? I don’t think he would have told us all his matrimonial troubles had he known that we had been married only that morning. I’m sorry I shall not be able to give you a birthday present on the 24th, but I wish you all the best Darling. What sort of Christmas did you have? This year we should be able to make use of some of our wedding presents. I imagine they are “browned off” with being stored. The February weather here is much the same as in England – wet. Well! cheerio once again Dearest & all my love, God Bless Bob xxxxxxxxx
