Dear Mum,

At last I am getting a little straightened out, although on Friday it was just like starting all over again.

I had quite an enjoyable time at Alan’s place Thursday night and we caught the 8-25 train in the morning arriving at the camp by mid-day. We have had all varieties of weather rain, hail, sleet and snow and at present it is absolutely freezing. I am in

[page break]

a hut with 7 others, all my mates from Cambridge, and have the coke stove packed to the top, so we are quite comfortable.

We do very little here, and have all evenings off from 5 pm and all week-ends free, so have plenty of time of visiting Manchester, although from what we have seen of it we were disappointed. Anyway I can tell you more about this in my next letter.

Well, mum I will close now so [deleted] closing [/deleted] I send all my love. Write soon.

Yours
Reg xxxxx

Regards to Dennis & Bill.
