Dear Mum, Dad, Norman & Hazel,
Well here I am on terra firma once more and very thankful to be so. We arrived here on Sunday, 6th after a 42 hrs. train journey from Durban. The “cruise” was uneventful, though there were a few scares. All being well, I shall be starting on the next part of my training on Monday. This will last 9 weeks, without any flying. I hope you received the telegram I sent yesterday.
We are in for a jolly good time. I wish you could see the stuff in the shops now that Christmas is near. I hope you’re all well and that I shall soon be receiving Airgraphs from you.
Your affectionate Ron.
