Dear Mother –

I’m rather adrift writing to you this week – I am sorry – but it can’t be helped. Thanks very much for your letter. You always seem to have quite a few of the family down for weekends – which must be nice for you- So Dick & Ted have gone out to India – Sickening for them really & such miles away- Perhaps their eventual destination will be Mesopotamia!

Not much news our way either. We are beginning to train for a regatta which we hope to have in May sometime-

Rather amusing about Spec’s armlet- I never knew there was anything really wrong with him except his eyes!

We’ve just made quite a nice Church on board – very small of course – but an excellent thing to have. I must get Rosamund to make something for it.

Thank goodness all the snow seems to have disappeared – lovely to-day it was.

Best love to you all. Your ever loving son
