Dear Win,

Please do not reply to this letter as I expect to be posted this week.

Our easter holiday was none existant [sic] so you can count yourself lucky.

I managed to wangle it the sunday [sic] before last as the alert only lasted for about 5 mins up here, and they did not have time to turn out the gaurd. [sic]

I’m afraid this letter is very short but in about 2 mins, we are going on tea

[page break]

parade, and as my stomach dictates my hand, it means I’m going to attend it.

Well thats [sic] all for now

So Best of Luck Win

[underlined] Jim. [/underlined]
