Dear Marie,
I wrote two pages to Dad last night but as I received 4 airgraphs from you today I’d better answer them on the spot. Eileen and Jim both came to light in today’s batch as also did Doreen Phelan. Don’t worry about the insurance for the time being. Glad to hear news of Dan, although the expected leave didn’t materialise. Also to know my mail is coming through once more. So far I’ve had no opportunity of getting near Flegg & son and can’t see one cropping up for some time but I’ll keep it in mind if I do get near London. The increase in the Jeffrey clan must have caused some excitement. Was rather surprised to hear you received a letter from old Rex in Cornwall. However I can hardly imagine myself going down there again. I must have given you the wrong impression of English girls. Probably written in my first week or so when I hardly went to the right places. Actually they aren’t so very bad. Just as well to get back to a bit of golf again. The ….. should be an extra interest.
RAAF cricket team towelled up the British Army at Lords last Saturday. Bill Baker went down from here but was only 12th man. Well Marie, I’m afraid I’ll have to get back to work. That occasional parcel you mention would be much appreciated- a cake would be a change from spuds you know.
Love Pat.
