OFFICERS REST HOUSE
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
