My darling Mum & Steve,

Just a line to let you know how I am getting on. We moved from Hastings on Monday morning & arrived at Torquay in the evening. We were not allowed out yesterday but are going out tonight for a swim. The R.A.F. was obviously novelty and everyone looked at us. We have to march to the dining Hall about 5 minutes march and everyone just looks It is like a monkey parade. Torquay looks a jolly fine place. The bay is lovely. We left the girls in Hastings well trained. Here there are 1000 girls from the Prudential evacuated from London. We start serious training shortly! More later. God bless
You both love [underlined] Dave [/underlined]
