Title

Letter from Reginald Weeden to his mother

Description

Mentions that her letters were probably being held up by censor. Writes he was enjoying the privileges of rank but was not too keen on his course. Sorry that he was not able to come home to see them all. Asks her to let him know if they want anything which he could get after Christmas when he had some cash. Was glad that she had written to his Canadian friends who he saw last weekend on his latest 48 hour pass.

My dear Mum,

Received your air mail letter dated 26.9.43 this evening the first since graduation, I expect your letters are being held up by the censor so don’t worry. Am enjoying the privilages [sic] of my rank but non-to-keen on the course, too much to cope with especially so short a period after the last course. Would have loved to have seen you all first, but as it is now Evelyn [underlined] will [/underlined] be old enough to go dancing with me – is she disappointed in not seeing me. Let me know is [sic] she wants anything in particular, clothes (size required) or yourself for that matter. At present you will have to wait til [sic] after Christmas until I have some cash at hand for my expenses were large just lately. I am glad you are writing to Mrs. Ashton for it has been just like home there, managed to get to see them last week-end during my 48 hr. pass which I am fortuneate [sic] to get every fortnight. Closing now, hoping to hear from you again soon. Regards to Dennis & Bill All my love
