Dear Mum,

Just a few lines before I go up again, was flying all morning and am detailed for my first night flight, this is where my navigation will tell. We have certainly been putting the hours in, seven flights in four days, just beginning to feel fatigued so I hope it will slacken off within the next few days. We start our mid-term exams on Wednesday, these will last over a period of two weeks, so my evenings will be spent in the classroom from now on. I received Bills letter last Friday, so will write very shortly, I haven’t heard from you lately so I am hoping it is on its way. We were expecting four days leave after the exams, but this has now been cancelled, instead we are to be given a 48 hr. pass every other week, I shall of course spend this at my friends, for I am very welcomed there Well, Mum, I am practically half way through the course, and the rest of the time will pass very quickly, then I shall be home in no time, so Cheerio for now, will write as spoon as I can shortly. Regards to Dennis & Bill

All my love

Yours Reg xxxxx
