Dear Mum, Dad, Hazel, & Norman,
Today I received 2 airgraphs and 2 letters forwarded from Woodbrook. You will be amused to hear that the 2 letters (1 from home & 1 from Pop) were dated 20th and 16th Dec. respectively. By the way I received the B.O. & C.M. Ltd. Christmas card a couple of days ago. The 2 airgraphs are from home. [deleted] [indecipherable word] [/deleted] I see they are two parts of one message. Fortunately they arrived at the same time. I’m very pleased to hear of the gardening effort and hope something does come up to reward you. You mentioned that Mr. & Mrs. Field wished to be remembered to me. I often wonder how everyone’s getting on in our little “island”. I have some more news for you. I have passed my first exam here so there are only about 14 more to go now. I’m as good as through this course. (??). We are now in our 6th week of the 15 week course so we’re well on the way. I saw Fred Rolph again at the Smyth’s two weeks ago. He seems to be getting on fine & I hope to meet him when we are homeward bound. P. Kelsey will certainly be very fully occupied now that he has joined the A.T.C. I think he will enjoy it, although I should strongly advise him to join the University Air Squadron if he hasn’t already done so. (Continued on Airgraph 2.) Love, Ron. XXXXXX
