Many thanks for your letter & the D.M. I expect the porridge will arrive soon.
I wonder if you could find out about a small lightweight tent. The advt was often in the Field & I meant to have seen about it when I came home but forgot. The stores may have it – It costs £7 and weighs 4 or vice versa, can’t remember.
Wet & beastly again today.
My mother’s comment in her book of the letters:
This seems to have been almost too much, even from Dick who could do no wrong. The note on the envelope [written by his mother Gertrude] is a terse “tent” heavily underlined.
