Dear Norman,
I’m writing this letter on your 20th birthday. I hope you’re feeling fine. I offer my most profuse apologies for omitting to write to you recently and hope you will forgive me. You see I’ve been swotting at every available moment for the past two weeks in order to make sure of passing the exams. at the first attempt. I learned a colossal amount of stuff and when we had the exams. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of last week I was actually a little disappointed at the simplicity of the questions in general. Some of the blokes, however, must have under-estimated what was required by the questions in one particular subject, as they have “popped” it, though on the face of it, it was by far the simplest paper. Well I managed to get through O.K. and I suppose I shall soon be on the move again. I will write to you as soon as I have a new address, in the meantime please carry on writing to this address as all mail will be sent on. By the way, don’t send any more air-mail letters. They take ages to arrive & don’t come by air at all, whereas airgraphs only take 3 weeks. The air-mail letter took [underlined] 8 [/underlined] weeks!
Cheerio, now, and all the best at your new station.
Your affectionate brother,
Ron.
