Dear Mother   Would you mind sending me some loofa sock things for boots.

Say   2 pairs size 10. for gum boots

2 pairs size 7

2 pairs size 8

& you might send me some of those funny things you just shove on your toes under your sock like I used to see you sending Topher.

Best love to all

Yr loving son



By the way I’m a Capt

How good for Ted getting that medal.


Please send me that Balaclava hat that is knocking about somewhere

I forgot to put this in!


You might send me one of the linings for my tin hat 6¾.

Can’t see now, but it’s got sort of rubber buffer arrangements

comme ça
