Dear Norman,
I wonder where this airgraph will find you? Mother said in her airgraph of the 9th June that up to then you had had no further news of the course you are to take up. You seem to be getting in plenty of exercise in your spare time, anyway, with darts and table-tennis. Have you played the second round of your darts tournament yet? Dad seems to be keeping his eye in too, from all accounts.
I heard on the wireless last night of a heavy air raid on Hull and it has bothered me considerably. I hope Mum & Hazel are both safe and well. The devil of it is that I shall have to wait at least a fortnight before I get any news from them. I suppose I have been fortunate so far in that there haven’t [deleted] m [/deleted] been many raids while I’ve been away from home and I sincerely hope there are no more.
I hope your Hull friend is still with you. The chief thing is to have a good pal. We shall be having our Signals exam. before very long. I wish you could do it for me! Fortunately we’re two-thirds of the way through this plague of examinitis [sic] now and after the next one we shall be beginning to see daylight at the other side, I hope.
Cheerio, Norman, remember me to Andy,
Affectionately, Ron.
