Dear Marjorie
  I have received your two letters today. It must have been a great disappointment to you and Hilda not being able to take a house. Would the flat be to small for you two, you would only need one room, a sort of bed sitting room of course the beds are a problem in a place where is not much room, so darling I guess you have to forget the idea and continue living at home, although I guess you will soon think of some other idea before long. This week seemed to take a long time to pass, but I think time will pass fairly quickly, because we are kept on the go, as the summer comes we shall have to work longer hours, and get up early, they reckon in the summer we have about four hours sleep per night which does not sound very good to my way of looking at it, in fact I take a very poor view of it. The C.R.A. visited "F" troops position the other day and pinched the dail sight from the gun, did the guard fall in the soup? The punishment of the troop is that they have march 25 miles with fall pack up, heck are they happy? I pity the next officer who is found hanging around the gun during the night. The boys will shoot first and ask questions afterwards. They are really mad about the affair. I guess they will tighten things up for the guards, which will make the job more detestable then ever. Well darling I cannot think of any more to write about except that I shall be glad when my leave comes round again or better still, when this war is over and forgotten. Think of it darling, no more guards, no more taking orders, no saluting or bowing and scraping and to be with you all the time or nearly all the time. Heck this is my idea of heaven.
     Cherrio,
