V. many thanks for your letter. Extraordinary about that fellow Lyon – turning up at Delaford – Oh ha yes – he was onboard about a month ago I should think. He knew Chubbie out in S. America when he was in a ship out there – so I expect he went to the Shop I told him to. An awfully nice fellow.
I rushed off a letter to Sheina & Jim – and I hope they get them before the wedding; did’nt know you could suddenly shift the date at the last minute so to speak.
I had a letter from Mrs Steer yesterday telling me about dear Chubbie – she seems to have been rather bad poor child – and what with Tochie as well & then she (Mrs Steer) said the puppy went ill as well – she was rather worried.
I had a lovely long letter from Ted last night – seems to have plenty to do at Lansdowne – teaching recruits etc. How lovely Dick coming home – but what can he be doing I wonder. I do hope he gets to England for a bit anyhow-
Some air raid that – and a good bit of work getting that one down-
With my best love to you all
Your ever loving son
