Thanks very much for your letter – Yes I was adrift last week with my letter I am afraid – but I expect you have got it by now.
Not much news from this part of the world – I’ve just had a letter from Ben & Marjorie – Ben does’nt like being couped up all day at all- but otherwise seems happy enough.
I’ve “spoken” to that nephew of Mrs Black’s – he’s in my “division”, all same “company” – so I speak to him a good deal – quite a nice fellow – he was awfully surprised when I said I knew all the Blacks quite well-
I am glad to hear Ruth has fixed it up with Guy’s Hospital – seems a long way off though – Aug: 9th – but she deserves a good bit of leave first – does’nt she?
I get plenty of exercise these days – which is a good thing – as I was getting fearfully out of training with all that long leave.
Our quarter deck is huge – so we always play hockey every evening now & we also have a boat’s crew under way – in which I pull.
Miss Kellie seems to be installed as a Delafordian – I must say I liked her awfully – & everyone says something about her in their letters-
best love to all
your ever loving son
