V.A.D. Hospital Newton Abbot
My Dear Mother & Father
Received your letter this morning glad to hear all are well. My jaw will have to be fastened up for about 3 more weeks. By the way should like a small light pipe. I can enjoy a pipe of tobacco better than cigs. When is Ethel coming down tell her to go easy on the hob nails. Kind regards to all neighbours & love to Ethel & selves. Thanks for stamps. Hope Dad is still A1 & enjoying life. Cheer ho!
