Sunday, 16th May 1943

My dear Mother & Father,
What else can I write about other than my health & the weather.  I don't know, however I will do my best to fill up this letter.

Both parcels and letters from England are few and far between nowadays, I myself have had no letters for, I think, 10 or 12 days.  Of course we all know that you have been asked not to write more than once per week and that accounts for this present gap.  I am confident that you are all in the best of health & spirits - the church bells should be ringing in England today. 

Burt & I are both "in the pink" and in company of forty thousand others, are about to enter our fourth year of captivity, I wonder whether we will complete it?

I see the show in which Uncle Anton was engaged had it's final performance last Thursday to a record house- I would have given a lot to have been there last night.  Did you know that Mr Alexander belonged to the same firm as I?

We are beginning to feel the heat of the sun - today however is cloudy.  Looking back last winter was not winter at all compared with those of 40/41 & 41/42.

Well you have no need whatsoever to worry about Burt & I, I think we can both gain the scales at a good 12 stone & we are content. 
Please give my love to Dot and regards to relations etc.

All my love,
