My dear Mum,

Just a few lines to let you know that everything is OK out here. We have very little to do at this station mostly eat and sleep so I have plenty of time to write to my friends. Together with this airgraph, I posted ten in all so you see we are pretty slack. – we don’t mind – The evenings we spend in Moncton, visiting the few cinemas that are there – saw a good picture last night ‘Random Harvest’ with Ronald Colman and Greer Garson, and then if the weather is rotten there are two cinemas on the camp we can go to. To give you some idea of the camp, the blocks are like large houses, up and down stairs, of wooden construction to keep in harmony with the city, central heating, bedsteads with soft mattresses and pillows and a locker by each. The roads through the camp are named after the London roads, Oxford St, Bond St. etc. Actually it is the best camp I have been to in all respects. I had a walk round some of the large stores in town on Saturday and there were hundreds of things I should have liked to have bought, pity you haven’t these facilities at home – lovely little outfits for Evelyn – must see what I can do before I come home. Well, Mum I hope you are all well, so closing I send my love. Best regards to Bill (any improvement of the typewriter). Yours. Reg xxxxx To Evelyn xxxxxx
