1940 August 20th
I ended the other letter rather abruptly - due to lack of space, so I'll put a few scrawls on here for you as well - as you see by this letter of Ces' he's fighting fit & enjoying everything - I hope they get leave soon, the kids are looking forward to it so much. It's Reg's birthday Monday & I've sent him some cigarettes, sweets & books poor kid - he's hungry for home news & hasn't had a line from Aunt Allie - she's awful - do write to Reg & send along any odds & ends, as long as it's something from Aussie they love it & don't forget to start knitting at once - I don't see much of the lads, but if they don't get leave soon, I'll dash down to Salisbury again for the weekend - they love that.
We were very shocked to hear the news of the awful plane smash - Sir Henry Gullet, J.V. Fairbairn & etc. isn't it horrible - what happened?
Does Harold Taylor expect to come abroad with the next lot of troops - don't forget to give him my address - in case - also anyone else you know - I've not seen nor heard a lone of Ted Hattersley & Ces hasn't either, so get his No. and address from them & I'll endeavour to find him & anyone else you know.
Now darlings I'm going to get this away - write very soon & best wishes & happy birthdays to Alma & Patsy for 23rd August (too late) & 30th September - heavens how we'll celebrate on my return - I'm thrilled with news of Patsy's job - nice work pet - hope Dad can get something down in the City - try darling for heavens sake don't go back to camp & catch another cold - you all look super in the snaps.
Bless you my pets
All my - our - love
