[underlined] No. 2. [/underlined]
Dear Mum, Dad, Hazel, & Norman,
As you will have seen from Airgraph No. 1 I am still spending my week-ends chez les Smyth’s (Is that correct Hazel! I knew it was!) In case my other airgraph with the address has gone astray, I will repeat the Smyth’s address:- DR. & MRS. G.J.C. SMYTH,
30 ST. GEORGES ROAD,
EAST LONDON, CAPE PROVINCE
SOUTH AFRICA.
I’m sure they would be delighted to hear from you in England. By the way, I wonder whether Grandam & Aunt Etty have received the airgraphs I sent them 6 or 7 weeks ago. Your next airgraph will probably tell me.
I sincerely hope Norman was able to get home on May 2nd. If so, he’ll probably be sitting down to tea right now. He has certainly earned some leave. Please offer A. Swales my congratulations if you see him around. I should be pleased to hear, too, that Sgt. Suddaby had dropped in to see you.
For your general information I’ve had seven flips so far and will have another tonight. I haven’t quite reached Norman’s total of hours yet but I will have done in a few days’ time.
Cheerio, now, everyone & God bless you,
Ron XXXXXX
P.S. For gardening – follow that book.
