LETTER CARD [post mark]

Mr. & Mrs. K Gill,
55, Kyffin Avenue,
Halton,
Leeds,
Yorkshire

[page break]

Woodhall Spa
Feb. 8th/45.

Dear mum & dad,

Hello all here's just a few lines to let you know I arrived back safely. My flight Commander had made things right for me so nobody is any wiser except that I'm a trip behind the rest of the crew but that doesn't matter much at all.

I was certainly lucky to see you dad we very nearly caught the bus down to town; hope you got home O.K. with the coke.

Well that's all I have for now so I'll close & write again soon.

Goodnight & God Bless.
Lovingly Yours. Ken. [kisses]
