Airgraph No.1.
Dear Mum, Dad, Hazel, & Norman,
I hope you will note the new address. I arrived here from 48 Air School on Saturday. I believe I mentioned in my last airgraph that I hadn’t received many airgraphs from you just recently, but thought it was because they had been sent on to 41 Air School. Well, I called at the 41 Air School post office today and there found 4 Airgraphs waiting to be collected. 2 were from No. 63 and 2 from Dad. I was [underlined] very [/underlined] please to see them. By the way during my last week at Woodbrook I had plenty of time to spare for once so I wrote one airgraph to everyone I could think of. I sent one to each of Aunt Elly, grandma, Peter & Andy, besides those to you four, & Walter (Suddaby).
I think I shall have a good time here although we have been warned that there is a great deal of work to get through. We have got through the bulk of the routine matters consequent on arrival at a new station and are just about to start work again.
I am still spending my Sundays at the Smyth’s and earned [deleted] to [/deleted] my “keep” yesterday, I think, by doing a spot of pruning. It was rather a tough job but at the same time a pleasant change.
Cheerio,
Ron XXXXXX
(Continued on 2nd airgraph)
