My dear Mum,

Received your air mail letter this morning just after my final signals exam, this I am glad to say completed them, and I know you will be pleased to know that I passed them all, so the road is clear now, so am now looking forward to graduation day next Thursday. I wish you could be here to see it but I know you will be thinking about me. To date I don’t know what we shall be doing after, perhaps I will get word next week, in any case I will cable you. I am very sorry the mail has been pretty scarce the last week or so – but now that I have achieved my aim I will have more time for writing. As far as I know I shall be returning to Moncton a few days after graduation, if this is so I shall spend the week-end at Mrs. Ashton and stop en-route at Montreal for a day before continuing on, then I expect I will be at Moncton for about three weeks before we are shipped home, so unless I get a job out here, it won’t be long before I am back in England. I have a few more snaps for you, so I will drop them in an envelope and post it the same time as this. Closing now all the best to Dennis & Bill.

Yours lovingly
Reg xxxxx

To Evelyn xxxxx
