My dear Mum,

I received your letter dated 5th yesterday, and I must say the mail is taking a little longer to come across, I expect it is the Christmas rush, but it was so good to hear from you again. Well we are now stuck at camp until our five days at Christmas, of course through this our 48s have been stopped throughout December, much to my annoyance, but I am hoping for a Sunday off before then so may be able to get up to Toronto. I was up there last week-end, to collect my photographs and Mrs. Ashton said she would pack them and send them on to you. There is one large and two small copies so that you can carry one in your bag and perhaps Dennis would like the other. I also managed to get little Evelyn a present, and the store is packing and forwarding it on to her. I will get you some stockings the next time I am there, let me know if there is anything else, shoes etc., anything that requires coupons, let me know the size. Well once again I must come to a close, we have just started exams again so I am again up to my neck in work. Regards to Dennis & Bill All my love

To Evelyn xxxxxx
