My darling Mummy and Daddy.

Thanks for your letter. We went for our Annual picnic today not to Kilbury but to the Chalbé, [?] as the barometer registered that there would be rain there. And it not only rained, but hailed. But at the Chalbé [?] is [sic] was lovely and sunny. We had quite a good time. It will be a surprise getting a midweek letter after such a long time, but I have no work tonight as we have just come from the picnic. Please do not send us a parcel this month, only the toothbrushes and 1 tube of toothpaste each as we have everything, and please do not send chutney or anything but send us some extra money for travelling down, as we stay at Bareilly for ten or twelve hours and we will go to the canteen and things like that. But we won't by [sic] anything from Indian shops so you need not worry. Oh! Thanks awfuly [sic] for the money. I heard from Lall again, he writes quite regularly, but not so Ronald. I have only had one from him. I am writing to [one indecipherable word] to Thank her once more, and I will ask her to drop you a few lines. She sends her love. It must be horrible with all the ticks knocking round the house. No more news today, God bless and keep you for us with love from [underlined] Dave & Steve. [/underlined]
