My dear Mum,

Received your air mail letter of the 18th a few days ago, I don’t know why it is but they have been flying the feet off us, even though we have our total time in for the course, Monday we went up in the afternoon and again in the evening, so I was just dead beat the time we finished 1-30 am. We heard the final photography results this morning and we all passed so thats [sic] one off the list, we have another exam on Monday so I am just preparing for this. Well time is simply flying past am in the final month now, graduating on the 30th so I am looking forward to this day. I will do my best and see what I can get for Evelyn, ask Bill to enquire at the bank whether he can cable me a travellers cheque, I think you are allowed to send this, it would give me a larger scope in bringing a few requirements home. My knee is completely healed now, and am still having marvellous times at the girl friends, I hope you have received the snaps by now – I already mentioned that I received yours also my camera – thanks – Well must close now so hope to hear from you again soon. Regards to Dennis & Bill. To Evelyn xxxx Love. Reg xxxx
