This I hope will be the last letter you get before you get me personal like.
Unless someone, or something causes a priority travel hitch I should be back home Monday evening. So get yourself polished up today my girl – I’ll be seeing you tonight down by the Bay.
Didn’t have a party on our anniversary. The lads here are saving up for a do on Friday night – farewell to some Flight – Loot who is going down on leave. Looks as if I may be included in the festivities – we, I hope, (not because of his company but because of the plane) shall travel down together. Had three glasses of beer on the great occasion. They drank our health and I drank yours.
Am going out to a cattle station [Humpty Doo] for two days leaving after breakfast this morning. So won’t be writing you again.
Lots and lots of love dear
Hope everything in the
garden is lovely – Freddie.
