My dear Mum,

Received your air mail letter this morning after spending another marvellous week-end at my friends, it was more of a rest cure, for I have also been in the wars. I scratched my knee on the bunk last Tuesday, and although I attended to it, by Thursday it resulted in blood poisoning, so I reported sick and spent the next two days with a poultice on it, so by the week end [inserted] it [/inserted] was cleared up. We had our first long trip last week, to a station in Quebec and spending the night there, returned early next morning. My flying is practically complete now another few flights and my time will be in for the course. We start our final exams this Wednesday, so things are nearing the end. Yes Mum, I did receive your photos in the last letter I received. I expect mine will just about have reached you, by now. I hope you like them. My camera has come in very handy, its so compact, although I am also finding it difficult to get films I don’t think I shall need anything on my return, although you could suggest a few items for my party that are unobtainable at home, but I could get here. Well thats [sic] about all for now. All my best to Dennis and Bill, All my love to you
