Dear Mum, Dad, Hazel, & Norman,
This is the continuation from No. 1. I have a little news for you this week regarding my present course. We have taken 4 exams. so far out of 13 or 14 and we know we have all passed the first 3 of them. By the time you receive this we shall [deleted] [indecipherable letter] [/deleted] probably know the results of 2 or 3 more exams.
By the way I received an airgraph from Aunt Ettie late last week in [deleted] the [/deleted] reply to one I sent as I was about to leave Woodbrook.
I saw Fred Rolph again just over a week ago when he was over from Queenstown to spend a week-end with the Smyth’s. He is getting on fine and now runs his own soccer team. They’re very keen on soccer at Queenstown. I also had a very pleasant meeting with 2 of my old Torquay mates in town on Saturday morning. They were Ted Julier (an ex P.C.) and Ernie Gates whose name you will remember. They are 3 weeks further ahead of me on a similar training course at Queenstown so they will be passing out in just over 3 weeks time. Lucky devils!
I wonder how you all are, at home. I’m fine. I expect it seems strange to you nowadays when there is no aircraft overhead. Cheerio now, & God bless you all,
Your affectionate, Ron XXXXXX
