My Dear Brother Sid,
Just a few lines in answer to your welcome letter I have just received. So pleased to hear that you were quite well as it leaves me very well at present.
Thanks very much indeed for the 10/- note it will come in very handy, it’s awfully good of you to think of me.
Dad sent me one the other day so you see I’ve been awfully lucky this week. “Ha Ha”.
Dear Sid, I think perhaps I shall be home for Christmas, our Captain is trying to get it for us I hope for the best, we will have a nice time if I do manage to get home. “You bet”.
It’s a grand day here today just like a spring day, but it as been something awful.
We are still busy, plenty of route marches my word, some of them want a bit of sticking. Ha Ha.
We are going to Deal next week to fire a few rounds, just a refresher course.
Of course, you know that we are finishing our training shortly, I have passed out bombing this week
Well, Sid I don’t think I have any more to say this time, there seems very little to write about as usual, once again thanking you kindly for the 10/- note I will close.
With Best Love
Your Affec Brother
