Dear Joan, Things are going very well, I am quite fit and getting plenty of food. I have met Dal, he sends his best wishes and will be writing soon, a fellow came round to see me called Cornish, seems he used to know you. In my parcel include some underwear. Send this card to Air Ministry, you have permission to draw my personal kit. Send a pipe in my parcel, not my usual one, any old thing will do, don’t let anyone borrow my fishing tackle, I shall be using it soon, All my love Walter.
