Dear Abdul
I must apologise for my long silence. How are things going for you? I heard a certain amount from Freddie of course when I went down to see her.
Re-myself, I had a medical at C.M.B after my months sick leave and I went through the whole [indecipherable word] and came out A.HBH which of course permits me to fly but in this country only.

My regards to your wife and all the best to yourself.
Sincerely ,
[underlined] John. [/underlined]
