1ST TRAINING REGT.
R.A. HOME FORCES
I received your letter dated the 28.10.40 for which I thank you very much .I have not received the letters which you sent to Brighton yet I expect they will arrive shortly. I will accept the offer of pullover and gloves. Please make the pullover with sleeves and the gloves with fingers. You had better leave the cakes for a while because we get a fair amount of food here. Now I would like to put you wise regarding me having plenty of time to spare, training in the army is ruddy hard work and the time to spare is nil, so please do not mention about time to spare again. I read that part of your letter to the boy in my room, boy did he swear. I am glad you were O.K. with the insurance, a few more weeks will see you knowing your way around all over the place . A few more weeks for me in the army will see me up the pole. Well darling I must close now.
Please note new address. Will write again as soon as possible'
