My dear F & M & Gladys
Cheer Oh! I was delighted to receive your letter the other day. I was unable to reply immediately for we have been on the move. Glad to hear Pa vanquished the red dragon. She is an awful cat. I suppose Gladys is back at college again now. I do hope she passed the final. Well there is very little to tell you really. I had a PC from Gus yesterday he is quite OK. I was awfully sorry I was unable to meet him but I may drop across him soon. I had a letter from Bill this evening saying he had sent you 5/- for the fund. If you will make it up to 2£ I will let you have a cheque for 15/- as soon as possible. How’s Ma I hope she is keeping quite fit. Leave has started in small quantities so I may be home before Christmas. Well this is all now. My very dearest love to all.
Your loving son
PS sorry I can’t write more but time is short just at present.
