Officers Mess
R.A.F. Station
Little Rissington.
30th October 1942.
My dear Phyl.
Heaps & heaps of thanks for the parcel and the lovely washing – but you must let me pay for the laundry next time I see you – now promise.
I went to Wattisham not far from Con for BAT so managed to get over there last Friday in time for tea. It was good to see Con again and we did so wish you’d been there too. On the Saturday Tiny Daw came in for lunch & caught me in the middle of inspecting my models which she’d never seen before. She’s a nice girl and jovial – I do hope she blows in to see Con for a cup of tea now and again to relieve the monotony.

Con looked pretty fit and well and of course she was delighted to see me – bless her heart. I’m night flying for the present which gives me a spot more time to travel so think I’ll try to get down this week end as a surprise. I expect you heard that Mrs Isaac has gone to Cardiff and is going to take in P.G.’s there. Con says she was a bit off hand when she got back and so she’s not sorry to see her go. I think she’d rather be alone, although I’d rather she had someone with her during the winter.
Must rush now so heaps of thanks for the parcel it is grand of you.
Heaps of love.
[underlined] Dec. [/underlined]
