Kay Darling,

Received your Sundays letter this lunch time – thanks Pip! Yes dear, I went to see the M/O this afternoon regarding the spots I get in my hair & he has given me an Ether Shampoo, also some pills to make me sleep. Will do my best regarding a trip over after Wednesday, it's about time we had a stand down.

The leave situation looks blacker than ever, I very much doubt if I shall get off for Sat.

Sorry to hear about your disc, afraid it did look rather a weak point, but our little man will fix that up I guess.

Gosh I feel tired & yet

[page break]

2.

I can't seem to sleep when I get to bed. Maybe it's what we calls [sic] the screaming abdabs!

Must away pip for a meal lets hope for a letter tomorrow

Bye Bye Darling

All my love

Yours always

Jim XXX
