Fiskerton,
10/10/44.
Dearest,
I thought I’d better write to you as I don’t know when I shall be able to go & see you. I’m not very busy, but I’m not getting sufficient free time to be able to get away.
I hope you got back safely on Sunday. I felt afterwards that I was rather a heel in making you go back on your own, & I’m sorry, darling. To my surprise, when I got to the Sergeants’ Mess, I found that you were expected, because they told me that they’d saved supper for the Group Captain & his wife, & for you & me. Still, I don’t think you’d have enjoyed the party; it wasn’t my cup of tea at all.
I hope everything is going well with you, & I’ll be over as soon as I possibly can.
All my love,
Harold.
