Dear Win,

Guess I haven’t much news for you, as we do nothing but daily work here.

To-day (Sunday) we are on a swimming parade, for which I am waiting now.

That just about ends all the sensible news I have and any thing I manage to put further will just be tripe.

By the way, let me

[page break]

know what you think of the dog when you see it.

They have got a darn nerve, choosing a new dog without us being there to approve or disapprove of it.

I guess it will be a darn nuisance if I start coming in, in the middle of the night when I’m home on leave, and a darn dog that doesn’t know me.

Well thats the lot,

Best of Luck

Love

[underlined] Jim [/underlined]
