12 April 1916 – Paul to Gertrude

Wednesday. 12th


Dear Mother-      Very many thanks for your letter – glad you got the ribbon safely – let me know if you want any other ribbons & I’ll see if I can get them – I’ll try anyhow.

Awfully nice having Ruth home for a bit now – more company for you and Dreda. Fancy bicycling to Ockham – shades of Camberley days!! I wonder how Ted likes the idea of going back to Lansdowne – huge reception I suppose – but very few of his friends there I should imagine.

Don’t know exactly that this rash of mine is getting any better – it seems to have stopped in a “not quite” safe state – so annoying.

I had a letter from Dick too – I sent one to you to send to him – because I did’nt know his address exactly.-

Awful these new taxes ! Very thoughtful of you & Dreda about the matches – there’ll be a great boom in those lighters now I should think.

Nothing much in the way of news.

Very best love to you all

from your ever loving son
