Kay Darling,

News, News, had a word with the W/C & DV etc I should be on leave by this weekend, any chance of you getting some time off?

Ron came over last night and took the crew to a friend in Boston Dr. Somebody or other, what a wizard feed we had, Ron really laid it on as our finishing up "Do" & believe me it was really bang-on

Half expected a letter from

Received the Insurance & will see Percy when I'm on leave.

Afraid I've nothing else in the news line, I really like being i/c of the section, bags to do & quite a feeling of satisfaction after doing it.

Good bless Darling & don't forget I love you very much.

Yours always

Jim XXX
