My Dear Folks – Waiting Bank Balance. I believe I should be F/Lt on Dec 14th according to new promotions. Should get corresponding increase!! This comprises the total of my mail for this month. I am very well & am happy to be receiving your mail now. Things here are just the same as ever, but I could write you a book on my thoughts if only I had the paper. I feel very sorry for Mrs A. and would like you to meet her and do all you can to lighten the blow. Mary S. is writing regularly, but tell Gwen my head is still screwed on the right way. Please do not send a lot of blankets, one will be sufficient. When I manage to get a few clothes, you can send me 10lb of chocolate. - It won't be wasted!

Give my love to the staff, & send another cable to Basil telling him that my spirits are OK & to watch his own. Tell him I am looking forward more than anything to our next meeting.

Best to Grandma's both. Keep smiling Alan.
