Hello Joan Darling, We are still keeping fairly fit, although food is somewhat short. However, Darling I shall be able to make up for lost time when I get home. I’m beginning to smell the strawberries & cream again. Both Bob & I will be unloading ourselves upon you as soon as we arrive back in England. God Bless
Bob xxxxxxxx
