My dear Mum,

Many thanks for your two letters received a week ago sorry not to have written sooner but have been very busy – exams etc. next week will see me through, then we have our flight party on Monday 27th followed up by Wings Parade on the 30th so have just two weeks to go, the time you receive this I should be just about through. Regarding stopping over here – this depends on the vacancies and whether they require R.A.F. instructors so as far as I can see, I shall be on my way home sometime in October. The exams are going well up to now – have another two tomorrow besides a final medical examination, have still two more night flights before my time is to date, at present it is over the 100 mark. Am still having some grand week-ends at Mrs. Ashtons and her meals are simply marvellous – the address is as follows:- 66 COLLIER ST., TORONTO, ONTARIO. Dennis was asking about Gina – well we still write to each other – the girls out here is just a mere friendship. No I haven’t heard anything from morriss [sic] since my last letter to them, but you know what these funds are. Thank Dennis for his two airgraphs received last Friday will write to him soon. Closing now all my best to Bill

Love Reg xxxxx

To Evelyn xxxxx
