Dear Dad,

I wrote a letter home only a couple of days ago stating I was enclosing a certificate of our crossing the Equator. I find I didn’t enclose same so I’ll make this short. Whilst on the enclosing stunt I’ll also enclose a small photograph of yours truly. It is pretty horrible but it only cost me 6d so I couldn’t expect too much. In any case the chief fault is that I was the subject.

and guess I’ll be able to tell you more about it next time I write.

Since last writing I’ve seen Ralph [indecipherable word] in an extra good comedy “Is your honeymoon really necessary.” I roared laughing at him from start to finish for even in the more serious moments, the expressions on his face & his antics in general were a tonic.

Bill Doyle, Brad, Maurice Dyer and all the boys we thought we’d left behind are again with us, and in fine fettle.

I’ll finish this now. Some of the chaps have got a fair deal of mail from home but so far none has shown up for me yet.

Love to all at home

Pat.
