Sgts Mess

Dear Maggie

Thanks very much for the very nice parcel received safely but very late. You posted it about the 10th and I only got it last Saturday I had not noticed my name on the registered mail list so had not collected it You certainly intend me to look clean don’t you? especially about the [deleted] please [/deleted] face. Well Maggie news here is very scarce, as you can guess there

[page break]

is so much about here that I cannot write about. This last week we have had a concert in camp on Monday a Dance which I could not go to on Tuesday & on Wednesday a play by G.B.S and on Saturday a dance in the mess so last week was very busy. Apart from these things life still goes on here in a very quiet way nothing much apart from work You say you are busy well so am I and what you make I use now so it keeps us both busy

[page break]

May be home to see you in another month or so but will let you know later about it. What a huge funeral the Bwlch-Y-Rhiw people had all Wales was there I should think. By the way what kind of aircraft was it that crashed there must have been a big one to carry a crew of 7

Well Maggie I must finish off now. Thanking you once again for the useful parcel

Best wishes & love to Dad & yourself

Your loving brother
