Dear Mother & Father
Just a few lines to let you know I’m still keeping fit. I’m hoping to get that parcel from you in a day of two. The weather here is getting rather cold but I haven’t put on any extra clothes yet. I hope Dad is still busy & that Ethel is still enjoying herself. If you see Pat’s ma tell her I’ll write again soon.
Trusting all are keeping well with kind regards to all neighbours & love to all at home.
To Mrs E. Widdicombe, 45 Park Lane, Wallington, Surrey
