Dearest,
This is just a short note to let you know how much I miss you. As yesterday, I am writing this after getting up (10.45 a.m.), so as to make sure I have time for it.
Last night was the fourth night running that we flew, so we are hoping for a stand down tonight. As you can imagine, I haven’t been able to go & see Spalford this week, but will do so at the first opportunity. The tomatoes ought to have come on very well, as we’ve had a good deal of sunshine in the past few days.
I haven’t finished “Cornish Childhood” yet, as I haven’t had much time for reading, but will send it as soon as possible.
Yesterday the Flying Control officer from Cark paid Fiskerton a visit. Everyone who was there in January (of the staff pilots & instructors) is now in training for ops or on ops. Gibb & Price are still there, & everything otherwise

is much the same.
All my love, darling,
Harold.
