Dear Lew,

Its about time you answered my letter, I suppose you have been much to [sic] busy catching the train from Banbury to Oxford and vice versa, lucky bastard, wish I had the same chance.

As you say it probably is much better that I stay where I am, I have no particular desire to stick my head out, and to be perfectly frank I am beginning to enjoy

it here.

It took me almost a couple of weeks to get organised, but I eventually succeeded in doing so and at the moment I am having a wizard time.

From what I can gather there is every possibility that I shall be stationed here for the duration, I was having a chat with a couple of old hands a day or so ago, they have been here for 2 years and are likely to stay for another couple, so you see, my chances of being posted are very remote indeed.

Personally I don't mind how long I stay, leave is quite good, 14 days every eight weeks, and strangely enough the train service is absolutely wizard, I can book a sleeper on the boat train at Stranraer and sleep all the way down to London, I believe it takes 14 hours to get there, but as there are no changes, and I can sleep all the way its a piece of cake.

I beleive [sic] Bert Price is coming on leave soon, if you are home and you see him, take him out on the ale, I know he would

welcome a night out on the piss, so if you called for him one night it would be the opportunity he has been waiting for.

All for now.

Cheers

Ant.
