My dear Mum,

Received your air mail letter August Monday, no holiday for us, did manage to sleep in to 10 am, but this was due to us, for we had been flying til [sic] 2 am. I have now 60 navigating hours to my credit so I am well over half way in my flying total. It has been raining for the last two days so this has served as a break, although we have been on synthetics each night instead. I sent a few snaps on to you last week by ordinary mail so you should get them shortly after this. Have another 48 hour pass this week-end, so will make the best of it, before I commence my 14th exams, the following week. From now on there will be exams every week until I graduate, that is, on an average two subjects each week, this giving us sufficient time to swot in between each. Will write to Dennis and Bill as soon as I can, I hope you are all well and not working too hard through the holiday, for what I have been going through here I shall certainly need one when I come home. I must have a word with my instructor regarding the prospects of the work after the course, for want to get in something good. Will let you know the result later. Closing now

love Reg xxxxx

To Evelyn xxxx
