My dear Mum,

Thanks for the washing which I received today and I am risking sending a further parcel hoping I won’t get drafted suddenly. If anything does turn up though, I will wire you, then you can send it on as soon as possible. I don’t know why the parcel should have taken so long in arriving my only conclusion that it was held up until Monday at the Sub Post Office, so I am posting this one at the General hoping you get it by Monday.

At present we are still continuing lessons, as this

weeks draft is complete, but I am expecting to hear tomorrow whether I shall be going next week. I can generally tell when we are going out a few days beforehand, so I will write and let you know. Don’t worry too much about me going away, for I shall be O.K.

Thank Bill for his letter and I will reply as soon as I can.

Cheerio for now and all my love.

Regards to Dennis & Bill

Yours
Reg xxxxxx

Lots of love and kisses to Evelyn on her birthday xxxxxxx
