27 May 1918 – Richard to Gertrude

27 May







Dear Mother.      Still here yer see but so far I’ve heard nothing of my application for an exchange. Early yet. Wonder if you got your legacy alright & if you walked away with a cheque for £1000. It’s so fine here that I imagine it lovely at home & everybody on the river every day & tennis & so on.

I have not seen or heard anything of Ted yet. I wonder if you have. I shall call in at Cox today & tell them to keep my letters   I hope you’ll be able to write soon & will not have written too many to Alex before you get my last letter. We eat white bread now & there’s lots of jam & stuff, but I wish I was home all the same. Did Jane go to the dance on Tuesday. Give my love to Eleanor

Yr loving son
