C Sqdn, 9th Battn R.T.R.
Jessie Mine: There was a letter for me today, thank goodness: I feel happier now that we have re-established contact. But you must not get the impression that I expect daily letters from you, as before. You cannot possibly write to me every day without neglecting some more urgent job, so please don’t attempt to do it. I will be quite content with an occasional letter… just to maintain contact, as it were.
Besides your letter, there was one from Marjorie…
Today, the rumour about our move is “on” again – so I don’t know now what the hell we are going to do… Maybe there will be more news tomorrow…
Thanks for the news about Barry… No doubt he will have forgotten me again by now, so you will not be upset by his asking for ‘daddy’… But… I do wish I had him here now: How lovely it would be to be ‘mithered’ by the grandest little pest who ever toddled.
Jess, Jess – it is nice to think about you both. I am a lucky bounder.
Good night, my darling
P.S. Am enclosing one or two more stamps for Brian.
